Plan Ahead If Traveling Late Monday Through Early Wednesday, Winter Weather Advisory Lasting Through 6 AM Wednesday

WAYNE – A week after a blizzard blew through most of the midwest, another round of snow is being forecasted starting late this evening.

According to a release from the National Weather Service – Omaha Center, a winter weather advisory is in effect for all of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa from late this morning through early Wednesday evening.

Accumulating snow and icing are likely to impact travel, with the greatest impacts during the Tuesday afternoon commute. The greatest unknown at this point is still precipitation type and temperatures.

As of Monday morning, Wayne, Norfolk, Columbus, Fremont, Tekamah and Omaha are expected to receive 3 – 6 inches of snow with the highest uncertainty being in southeast Nebraska. To the north and northeast, South Sioux City, Yankton, Niobrara and O’Neill could receive up to seven inches.

The potential for greater than a tenth of an inch of ice in Wayne is 30 percent.

The peak for the snow intensity is between noon and 6 p.m. on Tuesday with it tapering off Wednesday after midnight.

Warm, moist air will move into the region ahead of the system, Tuesday afternoon. More warming would result in less snow, but potentially more freezing rain and possibly normal rain. Weaker warming would lead to higher snowfall amounts.
