The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING effective until 6 pm this evening most of Southeastern Nebraska, including the city of Lincoln.
Heavy snow is expected to continue this morning with additional accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible, resulting in storm total snowfall of 6 to 12 inches.
Travel will be difficult especially on untreated roadways. Power outages have been reported due to the heavy nature of the snow. In addition, due to the heavy and wet nature of the snow, shoveling will be unusually difficult.
A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1
