Aside from a few light flurries around central Nebraska, meteorologists say the cold temperatures coupled with no snow is unusual for this time of year.
The National Weather Service is issuing wind chill advisories to warn people about the potentially dangerous temperatures. They expect wind chills to reach at least 15 below zero, and in some parts of the state they say it may get even colder.
Mike Moritz with the Hastings National Weather Service said, "We're pushing advisories for wind chills expected 15 below zero on Thursday for most of south-central Nebraska and north central Kansas. Once you get at that level, if you're outside and not properly dressed, hypothermia and frost bite can set in quickly."
