Blizzard Warning For Northeast Nebraska Until 7 PM

Blizzard Warning & Winter Storm Watch

Blizzard Warning & Winter Storm Watch

The NWS says 45 to 55 mile per hour winds, along with 3 to 5 inches of snow will cause blizzard conditions.

In Lincoln, snow was expected to arrive by mid-afternoon and linger into the evening, with possible accumulations of about 1 inch.

A "Blizzard Warning" from the weather service means "severe winter weather conditions ae expected or occurring".

The capital city has been just warm enough to prevent rain from switching to snow, with an area of low pressure essentially parked between Beatrice and Falls City keeping the rain-snow line at bay for now, said Van DeWald of the National Weather Service office in Valley. The region could see snowfall with hurricane force winds gusts up to 80 miles per hour.

A potent spring storm system that's expected to persist through the weekend raked across the Midwest Friday, spawning at least one tornado in Arkansas as blizzard conditions blanketed much of the Northern Plains.

The National Weather Service extended the state's blizzard warning to include the Twin Cities at about 12:30 p.m., in effect until 7 a.m. Sunday.

Airport officials expected flights to resume by 7 p.m. Saturday.

The best chance for snow accumulation will be in northwest Kansas, north of Interstate 70, where three to six inches of snow could fall. If you must travel, include a auto emergency kit in your vehicle and be sure to alert someone that you are departing and advise them of your route and expected arrival time.

If you stay home, it is a good idea to make sure your home emergency kit is well-stocked, too, due to the possibility of power failures.
