(Omaha) A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6:00 p.m. this evening for the counties of Monona, Harrison, Shelby, Pottawattamie, Mills, Montgomery, Fremont, and Page Counties.
Forecasters say snow will continue across the area today. In addition, freezing drizzle will be possible mainly along and south of Interstate 80 by mid-morning.
The Weather Service says much of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa will see an inch or two of snow with around 3 inches expected across northeast Nebraska. The heaviest snow will likely be falling during the morning commute.
The combination of 1-3 inches of snow along areas of freezing drizzle will make for difficult travel conditions especially during the morning drive to work. Slick roads and sidewalks along with reduced visibilities can be expected. Motorists should allow plenty of extra time to reach morning destinations.
