Our forecast today takes us to Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska.
At 552PM, ET, Omaha was reporting a temperature of 26 degrees with cloudy skies. Left over clouds across the upper Midwest are a product of warm temperatures overriding a fresh snowpack, with the evaporated moisture getting trapped under high pressure.
There was still a large area of low pressure off the coast of Newfoundland was generating a northerly flow that will do nothing to scour out the Omaha area, but is helping to produce flurries in the Upper Midwest. Given the position of clouds at this time, the northerly flow will mean clouds remain in place tonight and into tomorrow morning, despite how near the clearing is. It may take until tomorrow evening, when the upper level pattern allows for a warm front to force its way through the stratus. The warm front is associated with a fairly strong lee trough, so warming will be both quick and dry
