FREMONT – Another round of mixed winter precipitation could cause hazardous conditions and slippery roads tomorrow, and a second winter storm is expected on Thursday night. For now, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the majority of eastern Nebraska and parts of western Iowa beginning at 6PM Tuesday evening and continuing through noon on Wednesday.
Mixed precipitation is expected during the first storm, with a wintry mix beginning between 6PM and 9PM Tuesday before transitioning to snow sometime after midnight. Total snow accumulations of one to three inches are expected, with ice accumulating up to 1/10th of an inch. High winds are also expected, gusting as high as 35 mph.
Plan on slippery road conditions for Wednesday morning travel.
Another winter storm is expected on Thursday night into Friday, with snow being the primary precipitation expected. This storm could bring up to another four inches of snow accumulation on top of what Tuesday/Wednesday leaves, leading to another difficult or slow commute on Friday morning.
Commuters are encouraged to use Nebraska’s 5-1-1 website at 511.nebraska.gov to check road conditions along their planned route before hitting the road during any Winter Weather Advisory.
