Get the snow blowers and shovels ready. National Weather Service – Omaha Meteorologist Bryon Miller says a good portion of the state can expect snow this afternoon into tonight.
Miller says, “If you drew a line from west to east across the state, generally the northern half to two-thirds would have the heavier amounts with lighter amounts to the south.”
Snowfall will pick up during the overnight hours into Wednesday morning. Miller says it is still a bit to early to give exact amounts it looks like snowfall totals will be higher the farther north you go. The northern two-thirds of the state could see anywhere from two to six inches of snowfall. Areas south of that line could get an inch or so.
Miller says we will have temperatures in the 20’s so it won’t be the dry, fluffy snow or the wet, heavy variety when temperatures are closely to freezing. Winds will be in the 10 to 20 MPH range so there shouldn’t be any travel issues due to blowing and drifting snow.
