A winter weather warning is in effect for parts of southeast Nebraska until 6 am Wednesday. Winter weather advisory will impact those in the Omaha metro area and most of the state will be in a wind chill advisory until 11 am Wednesday.
National Weather Service Lead Meteorologist Van DeWald says about six inches of snow is expected in southeast Nebraska. The Omaha metro area will see about four inches. He says snowfall amounts will be significantly less the further north and west one travels. The snowfall will continue overnight and the weather system out of the area by Wednesday afternoon.
Dewald says temperatures will drop tonight and the winds will pick up. Wind chill factors will be at the 20-below zero mark and blowing snow is likely. He reminds those shoveling snow to bundle up and cover exposed skin to prevent frostbite.
