Many are waking up to a little more snow this morning.  Thankfully, this is nowhere near what we dealt with earlier this week.  So what can we expect going into the weekend?  Find out right here.

Just three more days to enjoy before things change. Today's highs will reach anywhere from the mid 40s east to the mid 60s southwest. Skies will be mostly sunny with just a bit of a west and northwest wind 5 to 15 mph.

Friday will be a little breezier once a trough passes through. That trough could even bring a few sprinkles to those in Northeast and Eastern Nebraska. Highs will get into the 50s and even lower 60s again.

Saturday will be the warmest day in the 50s and 60s ahead of a cold front that passes through Saturday night. That front could bring a little light rain to the area...maybe even a little light snow in the colder areas. Sunday will be cooler, but still mostly in the 40s.

Our next winter storm is likely to have some impacts to the area. Chance for snow and wind speeds will increase during the day Monday. The brunt of the snow will fall Monday night through Tuesday. Snow will work its way out of the area Tuesday night, leaving us with more sunshine for Wednesday.

Some of the biggest changes from forecast models over the last 24 hours are to shift the heaviest snow band a little farther southeast. At this point, it is looking like Southern and Eastern Nebraska and Northern Kansas are under the best chance to see the heaviest snow. Figuring out this path for the heaviest snow will be the biggest challenge in the coming days. Unlike some of the social media posts you may have seen out there, most forecast models aren't going nearly as high with totals. At most, I've seen totals up to around 12 to 18 inches, but even that could be a stretch. Some will see much lower totals with the best chance to the northwest. Winds will also be quite strong with this system, meaning blowing and drifting snow is going to be a big issue.

This system is still several thousand miles away, currently sitting in the Western/Central Pacific Ocean. That's still a lot of time to figure out the specifics of this. So at this time, your main focus should be on the fact that a winter storm is quite likely early next week and will have impacts. But at this time, it's best to leave the details alone until we get closer to next Monday and Tuesday.

The next four days are looking pretty good with above average conditions. Then we turn our eyes toward a possible significant winter storm that looks more and more likely with each passing day.

Some high cloudiness will be moving through giving us partly to mostly cloudy skies. We'll see highs ranging from around 40 east to the mid 50s southwest. Tomorrow should be a couple of degrees warmer with more sunshine. The warmest days will be Friday and Saturday with highs in the 50s and even some lower 60s. Then come the changes...

A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance of light rain and snow Saturday night through Sunday night. This shouldn't amount to much, but of course, even a little precipitation can cause problem...especially if it is in frozen form.

Turning next week's winter storm...keep in mind that there are still uncertainties. First off, snow will move in during the day Monday and really start to pick up Monday night. Snow is expected to continue all the way through Tuesday night and possibly into Wednesday morning. Some of the latest forecast models have shifted the path of this storm system a little farther south, taking the heaviest of the snow right through the heart of the viewing area. With this being said, forecast models may continue to shift the path of this system in the coming days. It currently sits southwest of Alaska, so it has a ways to go before it gets here.

Heavy snow is a possibility with 6 to 12 inches a good bet and possibly even more in spots. Along with that, we'll be dealing with strong winds. So while it is entirely too soon to use the word "blizzard" to describe the upcoming storm, the potential is there.

So it is looking like a significant winter storm will impact the Central Plains. It is certainly possible that we could see the worst of it, but that is no guarantee. Stay tuned to the latest forecast in the coming days as confidence increases.

Nicer weather will build in over the coming days. Dry weather will last through Saturday. After near average highs today ranging from around 30 northeast to the mid 40s southwest, we'll be working our way up to the 50s and lower 60s on Friday and Saturday.

A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance of rain and snow Saturday night through Sunday night. Sunday will be a little cooler in the 30s and 40s.

A potentially significant winter storm will move into the Central Plains next Monday and Tuesday. This system gives us the chance to have the heaviest snow of the winter so far. 6 to 12 inches of snow seems like a possibility at this time, but keep in mind we are still about a week out from this system and it is still several thousand miles away from us. This forecast will be fine tuned as we get closer to that time frame.

Plenty of sun will try to make a little dent in the snow cover out there.  But is there more snow on the way.  Find out in this morning's weather briefing.

A couple more mild and breezy days are on the way as I continue to put quite a bit of focus on the upcoming winter storm next week.  Get my latest thoughts on the early February snow on it's way.  It's all right here.

While we will all enjoy the next several days to come, I'm keeping a close on a significant winter storm that is looking more and more likely with each passing day.  Get my latest thoughts in this morning's briefing.

My wife and I went here for lunch and it was terrible. The atmosphere is boring. The food was terrible. The staff seemed like they didn't want to be there. I would not recommend this place to anybody. We were not looking for a big meal, so we stayed away from the buffet. We ordered the chicken quesadilla and onion rings. The onion rings were huge, but very bland. They tasted like bread and water. We had to ask for ranch just to add some flavor. The quesadilla was a little better, but you could get one much better and cheap at Dairy Queen, which isn't saying much. I'm not normally picky about my food, so getting a 1 star rating from me means something.
