Spring may continue to elude us, but this late taste of winter won't be too strong.
Snow was expected to taper off today, leaving about an inch or two total in the Omaha area.
"The snow should be coming to a close by late morning," said David Eastlack, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The rest of the day "will be overcast and gusty out of the northwest, 15 to 25 mph winds."
The National Weather Service and AccuWeather forecast a chance of snow tonight through Monday morning, with highs in the lower 30s.
"There could be flurries, but it's not going to amount to anything," said Tom Kines, senior meteorologist with AccuWeather. "It's just a reminder that it's not really spring yet."
Kines said areas further west received a greater deal of snow, with 5 to 6 inches in some places. South of the Kansas border, some areas got as much as a foot.
Some cold comfort: It could have been worse.
"Yeah, but it's still cold and crummy, and there's no heatwave coming in anytime soon," Kines said.
Kines said temperatures will moderate this week, though, taking a jump midweek and getting closer to normal by the weekend.
"When we get into April," he said, "we'll start to see some warm surges coming into the Omaha area, and everything will be right with the world again."
