OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — More wind-whipped snow is expected to hamper travel in eastern Iowa as Iowa and Nebraska residents try to dig out from a midwinter storm.

The National Weather Service expects up to three inches of snow to fall in eastern Iowa on Wednesday.

The weather service reports as much as eight inches fell over the past 24 hours in parts of southwest Nebraska and as much as six inches in parts of southwest Iowa.

Several school districts across both states canceled classes, including Des Moines public schools, while others planned late starts. Omaha area schools were back in class Wednesday.
