Snowfall rates up to an inch per hour possible Saturday afternoon

Another round of snow, including periods of heavy snowfall rates up to an inch per hour, will spread across the region between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service office in Valley.

Forecasters say the storm will decrease in coverage and intensity after midnight, but will linger through 6 a.m. Sunday. A total of three to six inches of snow is expected.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 3 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Sunday for all of southeast Nebraska, southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri. Hazardous travel conditions are likely with visibility being reduced to as low as a quarter mile through Saturday evening.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Wind is not expected to be a factor throughout the event, but gusts of greater than 20 MPH could be possible Sunday afternoon.

The weather service says there’s another chance for more measurable snow Tuesday into Wednesday.
