Travel impacts: Whether from a wintry mix, heavy snow, low visibility, or a combination of, travel will be hard to risky late Sunday through Monday night, with residual impacts possible into Tuesday morning. This means there is the potential for hazardous to unsafe travel along with threat to life if precautions are not taken.

"Just as we prepare for winter weather, motorists can also prepare to be sure that their drive is safe and uneventful", said Don Nosbisch, maintenance superintendent in MnDOT District 6 West.

In the Omaha area, today will be relatively mild, with sunny skies, a high temperature around 40 and an overnight low in the mid- to upper 20s.

With Monday's high near 32 in the metro, the snow is likely to be heavy and wet, unlike the light, fluffy snow the area got last week.


A wintry mix with freezing rain is possible south of the heavy snow band. Total snow accumulations 4 to 8 inches are possible.

Areas of northeast Nebraska, including Albion, could receive 12 to 15 inches of snow.

The storm system will move out by Monday morning but, some of the side streets will still be covered in snow and ice.

The National Weather Service is warning that travel could be hard, especially during Friday evening's commute and overnight. They advise you to continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
