Blowing snow a concern on Thursday

NEBRASKA CITY – A strong arctic front will sweep south through the region Wednesday night, bringing gusty winds and much colder air, according to the National Weather Service office in Valley.

Meteorologists at the office say the strong winds will likely result in areas of blowing and drifting snow for portions of southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa, especially along east to west highways and along Interstates 29 and 80. They’ve issued a winter weather advisory for blowing snow from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday.

Winds are expected to gust at 30-40 MPH. Visibility could be reduced to a half mile or less.

Cold wind chills as low as 15 below zero could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes, according to weather officials.
