A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect Tuesday morning for extreme Northeast Nebraska which includes the city of Wayne in the KMTV viewing area. A Winter Weather Advisory will also go into effect Tuesday morning for areas just to the north and west of Omaha, including Columbus, Norfolk, and Tekamah. Omaha is not currently included in any advisories or warnings.
Here in the Metro, snow accumulations look to be 1" - 3", as we continue to monitor the track of the storm. We will start out with a wintry mix during early Tuesday morning for Omaha. By mid morning, it will all be rain, with Tuesday's high near 38. The rain will then convert over to snow Tuesday evening, with periods of light snow continuing through Wednesday morning. Winds will pick up as the storm passes which could cause some visibility issues where the snow is heaviest.
Preliminary estimates show around an inch or two along and just north of I-80 through Wednesday. Through the Winter Weather Advisory area 3-5 inches are possible with 6 to 8 inches north of Norfolk.
