Freezing drizzle is expected to start late this afternoon for much of Nebraska and continue through the overnight hours.
Brett Albright is a meteorologist w ith the National Weather Service and says, “We are going to see that freezing drizzle start to increase over the region generally spreading in from the southwest. As we go through the day tomorrow, we will see that slowly transition into snow across the region with a couple of inches possible. Right now we are looking between one to three or so towards Omaha. Bigger totals generally further north. But, there are uncertainties with this so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.”
Anywhere from one to two-tenths of an inch of ice is expected before the precipitation slowly changes to snow on Tuesday. Higher amounts of snow are expected north of a line from Columbus east into Iowa.
Drivers across Nebraska should prepare in advance for slippery road conditions. Patchy blowing snow could reduce visibility. Icy roads could impact commute times Monday evening, Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening.
