NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. – There has been a big change in the “Winter Storm Hunter” forecast.
According to the National Weather Service office in Valley, the heaviest snow band has shifted to far southeast Nebraska, southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri, including the towns of Falls City, Auburn, Rock Port, Shenandoah and Red Oak. These areas could see anywhere between 4-6 inches.
Nebraska City, Plattsmouth and Glenwood are anticipating 2-5 inches, while Lincoln and Omaha totals have been modified to 1-2 inches.
WeatherEye Weather Center Meteorologist Andrew Mabis says how much snow the region gets depends on when the rain turns to snow overnight.
“Temperatures are going to continue to drop and it (rain) should turn into snow pretty much as we enter the early morning hours, right around morning rush hour or 5 to 6 a.m. Then after that, it should be mainly snow until it stops later in the day on Thursday.”
The weather service expects hazardous travel for the entire area with flash freezing of water on roadways and sidewalks, plus strong and gusty northwest winds.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 3 p.m. Thursday for the entire region.
