Winter Storm Warning in effect from 6 am Friday to midnight
CST Friday night... 

The National Weather Service in Omaha/valley has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for heavy snow and blowing snow, which is in effect
from 6 am Friday to midnight CST Friday night. The Winter Storm 
Watch is no longer in effect. 

* Timing... rain, or a rain and snow mix on Thursday night will 
  become all snow Friday. Snow is then expected through the day 
  on Friday, ending on Friday evening. 

* Snow accumulations... snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are
  possible from this storm system. 

* Winds... north winds of 10 to 20 mph on Thursday night are
  expected to become northwest 15 to 30 mph on Friday with gusts
  over 35 mph. This will create considerable blowing and drifting
  with near blizzard conditions possible at times on Friday and 
  Friday evening.


* Impacts... the combination of snowfall and winds will create
  difficult travel from late Thursday night into Friday night due
  to snow packed roadways and low visibility. 

Precautionary/preparedness actions... 

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of snow
are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an 
emergency. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and
water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
