OMAHA, NE — The amount of snow expected in the Metro area will be slightly less than predicted on Friday, but bitter cold and dangerous wind chill will still be a big concern.
3 News Now Chief Meteorologist Mark Stitz says the metro area can expect snow between late morning and early afternoon, with accumulations between 1 - 4 inches, with less snow north of the Metro and more south of the Metro.
But, winds will still cause problems with blowing snow causing poor visibility, and wind chills of 15 - 20 below zero. It is still recommended to stay indoors today if possible.
SNOW DOWNGRADE: Just like a lot of people, the winter storm is also struggling on New Year's morning. As a result, we've pulled back snow totals, BUT the impacts of dangerous travel and brutal wind chills have not changed. #Omaha @3NewsNowOmaha pic.twitter.com/iOQOxBX8Ph— Mark Stitz (@MarkStitz) January 1, 2022
