Red Flag Warnings are currently out to cover the threat. • Will see a VERY LARGE TEMPERATURE DROP behind an anomalously strong cold front for this time of year Monday into Tuesday. • Precipitation will start out as rain Monday, and turn into snow across most locations overnight. A rain/snow mix is expected across portions of the western Nebraska Panhandle, including the North Platte River Basin, extending into far eastern Wyoming. • Very low confidence in amounts we may accumulate. We do expect the first of the snow to melt onto lingering warm surfaces. Hazards: Cold overnight temperatures both Tuesday and Wednesdaymornings.
