Many Nebraskans woke up to icy, snow covered roads and bitter cold temperatures. National Weather Service Meteorologist Cathy Zapotocny says this winter storm system brought unusual bands of snowfall. She says, “Over the course of the past several days the storm system continued to shift south eastward as far as where the heavier snow was falling. That was the case today. If you traveled across Douglas or Lancaster County you really saw a difference between locations. If you were in one part of the county it might not have seemed to bad. If you were in the other part of the county you had zero visibility and blowing snow and more ice. It really was variable.”
Wednesday, temperatures were in the 50’s in eastern Nebraska. Zapotocny hopes everyone enjoyed that because it is back into the deep freeze for the foreseeable future. Temperatures will struggle to break the 20 degree mark for the next several days. There is also a chance of light snowfall Friday evening and then again Saturday night into Sunday morning.
