Forecasts indicate the OPPD service territory will see its first snow of the season tomorrow. With trees still laden with leaves, that could also mean power outages.
According to the National Weather Service, snow will move into the area tomorrow morning and linger through the night into Monday morning. Accumulations for the service territory range from one to two inches in far southeast Nebraska to four inches of snow north of the Omaha metro area.
The weather service says most of the snow will fall along and north of Interstate 80.
When snow falls while leaves are still on trees, it can lead to power outages. The weight of the leaves plus snow can bring down tree and vegetation limbs onto power lines. OPPD crews are ready to respond should outages occur.
If you experience an outage, you can report it online, by phone at 1-800-554-6773 or by using the OPPDConnect mobile app. The Storm & Outage Center will provide updates about outages as well as OPPD's social media channels.
