The snow will stay away from Northeast Nebraska through Christmas, but a storm may bring blizzard conditions soon after.
According to the National Weather Service, precipitation will start falling in Northeast Nebraska on Wednesday, Dec. 26, as temperatures hover around the freezing mark. Showers are expected Wednesday morning and turn to snow in the afternoon. Winds will blow 10-20 mph out of the east-southeast.
More precipitation will fall overnight with about a half inch expected in rain — or around 6-8 inches of snow if temperatures fall below freezing. Thursday will be more of the same with blizzard conditions possible depending on snowfall overnight. Winds will shift from the north-northwest and gust up to 30 mph, creating dangerous driving conditions with new snowfall. Snow will continue through Friday afternoon with winds gusting up to 40 mph out of the northwest.
