BEATRICE – It appears winter will be trying to get in at least one parting shot to areas of southeast Nebraska and northeast Kansas.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for the Beatrice areas and regions farther south, from late Monday night through mid-Tuesday morning.
The Beatrice, Fairbury and Hebron areas could receive two to four inches of wet snow, while an area stretching from Concordia to Marysville, Kansas to Falls City, Nebraska could get three to five inches of late season snow.
National Weather Service forecasters say daytime highs well above the freezing mark will help to melt the snow on roadways, but some roads could become snow covered in the overnight period.
After the snow moves out, highs are expected to recover to near 50 degrees on Wednesday.
Counties included in the winter weather advisory include Gage, Jefferson, Johnson, Nemaha, Pawnee, Richardson, Thayer, Nuckolls and Webster.
A freeze watch has been issued for areas of southeast and east-central areas of Nebraska, including Lincoln, Nebraska City and Omaha.
