Nebraskans are experiencing another round of winter weather that is making travel difficult in some areas.
National Weather Service – Omaha Meteorologist Becky Kern says right now the big problem is patchy freezing drizzle.
Kern says, “Parts of the area northwest of the metro saw some glazing earlier this morning. Parts of I-80 west of Lincoln right now are not very good. They are becoming ice covered as well.”
Kern says the freezing drizzle is in a narrow stretch that basically stretches from York to Lincoln. In the north-central parts of the state there is light snow. She says it isn’t real extensive but enough to cause some drivers headaches.
The freezing drizzle moved over the metro area around 10:15 a.m. That put a slick glaze on elevated surfaces. The treated roads should be ok but secondary streets could be a bit slick. Pedestrians should be aware that untreated sidewalks will also be icy.
The freezing drizzle is expected to move out of Nebraska later today followed by a round of wet, heavy snow. Parts of eastern Nebraska could see about an inch.
