All told, looking back at the expected range we had forecast from Tuesday night, I'm very pleased with how this one transpired, especially given the extremely hard forecast through all the transitions, the potency of the storm and the time of year. Winds of 15-25 miles per hour will sweep those areas and be accompanied by 40 miles per hour gusts this afternoon and evening, according to NWS.

A dusting on lawns is the most snow that is expected, with little to no effect on travel, according to the weather service.

Thursday will usher in sunny skies and a high in the lower 50s.

On Wednesday, there's a chance of another inch of snow and a high of 38. Highs will hit near 60 on Sunday and stay there for early next week.

Police remained on the scene overnight. "They have reported that this does not appear to be a random act", the university said. Police described the suspect as a light-skinned male who was wearing dark trousers and a Puma brand hooded sweatshirt.


Sunday, the metro area set a record for daytime cold, with the temperature peaking at 33 degrees, well below the previous record of 37 set in 1872. Snow amounts will not be anywhere near this past weekend but Cable is forecasting 2 to 5 inches of snow in Sioux Falls.

The first half of this April has been the fourth coldest on record for Chicago, with an average temperature of 36.5 degrees between April 1 and 15, according to the weather service. Grand Island's high was 31. The previous record was 40, set in 1993.

Saturday's low was 18 degrees, which beat the record of 19 degrees set in 1933.

However, earlier in the week, Hays approached a record high. That was just three degrees off the 1875 mark of 21.
