Short term (today through Saturday)

north central nebraska will remain in a fairly active pattern
through the first part of the weekend.
This system has the potential to produce both a period of snow and a
period of freezing drizzle. The first shot of snow will arrive
Friday morning with up to 2 inches possible across the north. Snow
will then slowly transition over to mostly freezing drizzle by the
afternoon. There is still some uncertainty in how much freezing
drizzle will accumulate. For now will keep ice totals under 0.15
inches with the most accumulation along a line from imperial to
north platte to broken bow. Will continue to monitor this over the
next forecast cycle. Regardless of how much ice will actually
accumulate, any amount has the potential to cause significant travel
headaches. Travelers should be prepared for slippery and ice covered
Freezing drizzle will likely continue into early Saturday morning at
which time precipitation will change back over to snow. Another 1 to
3 inches can be expected across the region with the greatest
accumulations across the south. In addition to falling snow on
Saturday, gusty northerly winds will cause blowing and drifting
snow. Extra caution should be used if travel is necessary on
Snow gradually ends from west to east throughout Saturday afternoon
with snow completely east of the region by Saturday evening. A
winter weather advisory will remain in effect for the entire western
and north central nebraska region through Saturday afternoon. See
the latest headline for additional details about this storm.
Long term (Saturday night through Thursday)
issued at 324 am cst Fri feb 22 2019
high pressure and a brief reprieve from the winter weather will
return on Sunday before the next chance of snow returns on Monday.
For the most part, this system will track to the north of the region
only briefly targeting the northern counties. Less than a half inch
of new snow is possible.
Otherwise, beyond Monday, a mostly dry forecast is expected. A
couple brief chances of snow are possible towards the end of the
week. Confidence is not high enough to do more than briefly mention
it here. Will continue to see how these little disturbances evolve
over the next several days.
For temperatures... Highs remain fairly consistent in the 20s and 30s
with the coldest day on Monday where highs will only rise into the
teens and 20s. Overnight low temperatures will start off in the
teens and low 20s through the weekend before dropping into the
single digits and low teens. The coldest night will be Sunday
night Monday morning where lows drop into the negative single digits
across the north. Here, wind chill values will also approach 15
below zero. No headlines are expected for the cold at this time, but
if one has outside plans early Monday morning, extra caution should
be used to protect against the cold.

across portions of north central neb. Meanwhile, low ceilings in
place with ceilings varying from lifr in the eastern panhandle to
MVFR and low-endVFR (less than 7 kft) across parts of north
central neb. Periods of light snow and wintry mix with freezing
drizzle today and this evening, the latter more so across
southwestern NE and the southern sandhills. Greatest snowfall
today and this evening across northern neb. Snow chances then ramp
up again then late tonight with light to moderate snow expected
across parts of southwestern ne, elsewhere mainly light snow.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
