Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said Monday night on Twitter that crews were expected to be out overnight with 300 snowplows working to clear city streets ahead of the Tuesday morning commute. 



Road conditions caused delays for Omaha Public School buses on Tuesday morning, specifically with those going to area high schools. 

Snow totals from Monday ranged from 1 to 14 inches throughout the region, causing one fatality, in Kimball County, according to the Nebraska State Patrol. Additionally, NSP was called to 75 accidents, 375 motorist assists, and two pile-up accidents across the state on Monday. 

Mayor Stothert also tweeted Tuesday morning that the city would remain on a 24-hour schedule. City engineer Austin Rowser said he hopes Tuesday's work is done by midday.
