(Chadron)-Just as area residents are done digging out from almost 18 inches of snow, another storm is making a bee-line for the Nebraska Panhandle. According to the National Weather Service, a slow moving Pacific storm system will interact with a stationary frontal boundary to produce periods of snow across the area through Wednesday.
Snow will spread north across the area today (Monday) and persist through Tuesday night. Snow, which could be heavy at times, will continue into Wednesday before ending. Although the snow will fall over a period of several days, there will be occasions where snow will become very light and even stop for a short period of time before resuming again.
Gusty winds will occur at times with blowing snow reducing visibilities and making travel difficult. Total snowfalls are expected to be around one foot across much of southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska panhandle through Wednesday afternoon.
A winter storm watch is in effect for the entire Nebraska Panhandle, Southwest South Dakota, and parts of Eastern Wyoming beginning on Tuesday evening, and ending at 9 am Wednesday.
