The weather outside will be frightful starting Friday morning in parts of Nebraska. Dave Eastlack is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service – Omaha and says freezing drizzle should start developing early Friday morning and continue throughout the day in east, east-central and northeast parts of the state. He says travel conditions could be dicey.
Eastlack says, “I’m really concerned about travel Friday morning into Friday afternoon. With the potential of freezing drizzle and the potential to get up to 100th-of-an-inch of ice, I would suspect the potential is going to be there to get numerous accidents across the area.”
Eastlack says a cold surge will come in from the north around midnight Friday and the precipitation will switch to snow. Three inches is expected north of the I-80 corridor and less than an inch accumulation south. Western Nebraska could get anywhere from two to five inches of snow in the northwest region.
