Metro area residents should be able to savor most of a mild Easter Sunday before a cold front and flurries arrive from the northwest, according to Becky Kern, meteorologist at the National Weather Service.
Kern said a light snow or rain mix probably will arrive about 8 p.m. By that time, temperatures will likely be hovering around freezing, down from 58 degrees at about 3:30 p.m.
The flurries will be short-lived, she said, lasting about three to five hours.
The atmosphere is so dry that much of the early-arriving moisture will get "used up" in saturating the air. Once that happens, flurries or sprinkles will begin falling, she said.
The forecasted high for Omaha on Monday is 41 degrees, she said.
