BEATRICE – The calendar may say spring, but don’t tell that to southern Nebraska residents. An Easter Sunday morning band of snow that stretched almost the entire southern length of the state, dropped three-to-five-inches of snow on many areas, as of eight o’clock, Easter Sunday morning.
The Beatrice area had received about four inches of powder, with more expected through at least early afternoon.
Very little wind accompanied the April Fool’s day snowfall…..the largest the Beatrice area had seen for the past four months.
Just before eight a.m. Sunday radar showed moderate to heavy snow extending all the way from Ogallala to Falls City, including heavier bands of snow in the Grand Island, Kearney to Hastings area, and from Beatrice to Tecumseh to Auburn.
The snow was kicking off a first week of April that is expected to bring temperatures in the 40s through Wednesday, with Thursday’s highs inching toward 60.
Most of southern Nebraska was included in a winter weather advisory for the first day of April.
