Nebraska and western Iowa will endure wintry weather early this week, but temperatures should gradually rise as the week progresses, forecasters say.
Today's high in Omaha won't exceed the low 30s, said Tom Kines, meteorologist with AccuWeather, The World-Herald's weather consultant.
The snow should slowly diminish today, leaving about 2 to 4 inches overall from the weekend. The National Weather Service said a chance of snow exists tonight and a possibility of snow showers and flurries Monday morning.
The storm dropped up to 7 inches of snow on parts of southwestern Nebraska. Much of the northern half of Nebraska missed out on Saturday's snow.
Flurries may continue today in central Nebraska, but like in the Omaha area, most of the accumulation will have fallen Saturday.
Both AccuWeather and the National Weather Service anticipate a slow warming trend this week in the region.
