Big blizzard a bust for Sidney


Courtney Fletcher

There was no snow accumulation in Sidney Wednesday morning. Temperatures are supposed to warm up for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Several local schools were canceled or had late starts due to the colder temperatures, wind and snow Wednesday morning.

According to Shawn Liebl, a meteorologist at the Cheyenne, Wyo., Weather Forecast Office, Sidney had no snow accumulation and weather warnings were canceled around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

"South and east of Sidney toward Ogallala experienced worse conditions," Liebl said. "Sidney was pretty much missed. Areas north and around Scottsbluff saw two to three inches of snow. It really varied depending on where you were."

A wind advisory continued through Wednesday with wind gusting up to 45 mph.

According to Liebl, weather will remain calm for the rest of the week.

"There will be a few snow flurries on Thursday, but it won't accumulate," he said. "The rest of the week calls for breezy, sunny and warmer weather."

Highs for Thursday and Friday will remain in the upper 40s to low 50s. The weekend calls for sunshine and highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.

He added that snow won't be in the forecast again until Monday.
