Winter Weather Advisory

The National Weather Service in Omaha has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow for the Norfolk Area, which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM CST Sunday.

A mix of rain and snow will change to all snow this tonight. Some additional light snow accumulations will be possible Sunday. Initially, temperatures will be near or above freezing with falling temperatures tonight and Sunday.

Precipitation is likely, however melting during the day and how quickly the precipitation changes over to all snow will affect eventual total snow amounts.

Total snow storm accumulations of 4 to 7 inches is expected.

High Winds and visibility are likely with this storm as northeast winds tonight will become northwest 20 to 30 mph and gusty late tonight and Sunday.

Area roadways will become snow covered and hazardous. Blowing snow on Sunday will reduce visibility and make it difficult to keep the roads clear, especially in open and rural areas.

The cold combined with the wind Sunday will lower wind chills to a range of 10 above to 10 below zero Sunday.

Here are some precautionary and preparedness tips from the National Weather Service:

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, use caution while driving.

A Winter Weather Advisory for blowing snow means that visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow around. Use caution when traveling, especially in open areas.

This Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the following counties in Nebraska: Knox, Cedar, Thurston, Antelope, Pierce, Wayne, Boone, Madison, Stanton, Cuming, Burt, Platte, Colfax, Dodge, Washington, Butler, Saunders, Douglas and Sarpy.
