A winter storm warning goes into effect at midnight for Antelope, Boone, Cedar, Knox, Madison, Pierce, Platte, Stanton and Wayne Counties and will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday. National Weather Service Meteorologist Katie Gross says it looks like the north and central parts of Nebraska will see the most impact from this storm.
Gross says, “We are still expecting a very strong winter storm to impact the region. Basically it will move in this evening and persist the whole weekend. We will have rain changing to snow with a wintery mix of ice pellets and freezing rain in between and that should start in far northeast Nebraska overnight tonight and into Saturday.”
North and central Nebraska could see anywhere from 6 to 10 inches of snow and about 1/10th of an inch of ice.
A winter storm watch is in effect for Burt, Butler, Colfax, Cuming, Dodge and Thurston Counties starting at midnight tonight and running through Sunday afternoon. Four to 6 inches of snow is expected a 1/10th inch of ice. Wind will be up to 35 mph causing blowing snow that could reduce visibility.
