Rain Switching to Snow

Snow, Wind, and Cold for Friday

Rain is switching over to snow and an icy mix across the Metro. The mix will continue until about midnight before there is a slight break in the activity. Snow begins again around 3 am with about an inch or two of snow on the ground in Omaha during the morning commute. Another inch or two of snow will fall during the afternoon.
 
A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for Omaha at 3 am and lasts through Friday. The Metro area stands to see between 2-4"  with 4-6" north of Fremont.  As the storm tracks into Iowa, the wind will be a problem for travelers with gusts of around 30 mph blowing that snow around.
 
Cold air stays in place for Saturday with highs only reaching the low 30s. There is another chance for snow Sunday morning before temperatures push into the low 40s. While the warming trend continues through the beginning of next week, a wintry mix returns on Tuesday.
