A Blizzard Warning is in effect for most of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa until early Sunday morning.
After freezing rain and drizzle Friday night, we continue a wintry mix Saturday morning before the switch over to snow in the afternoon. Heavy snow and high snow rates could give us several inches of snow in a short period of time in Omaha. High winds with gusts between 40-50 mph will cause blowing snow, reducing visibility and creating blizzard conditions across the area. Currently, a heavy band of snow could produce 6 to 9 inches along the I-80 corridor, including Omaha. Thundersnow is possible with this system and a few isolated spots of 9"+ of snow are not out of the question.
Temperatures will stay below average early next week with highs in the 20s and the potential for more snow by the end of the week.
