Higher amounts are expected across southwestern Nebraska, where they could see between 0.25″ and 0.75″ of rainfall.
This system is falling as snow in southeastern WY with some areas picking up 6-9″. Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for that direction through midday. With clouds and light rain, temperatures stay well below average by Tuesday afternoon as highs will range from the low 40s to near 60° across western Nebraska.
