In less than an hour the first wave of a winter storm slammed through the Omaha metro area. KMTV reporter Lindsey Thesis was downtown near 19th and Dodge and saw streets go from bare to snow covered.

She reported that some cars were having trouble getting up the hill on Dodge, despite it being treated before the snow started falling.

Reporter Miranda Christian has also been out checking area roads. She reports that roads near 72nd and Dodge are already getting slick.
