It looks like eastern Nebraskans and western Iowans will be back to shoveling snow over the next few days.
The National Weather Service out of Valley, Neb., forecasts a wintry mix for the area the next few days. They issued a Winter Weather Advisory through Saturday morning at 6 a.m. Here's the scoop
Friday, one to five inches of snow are possible, depending on the path of the storm.
A transition to drizzle and freezing drizzle is expected Friday afternoon, with light icing possible. This creates hazardous driving conditions.
Wind could gust over 50 mph on Friday night and Saturday, causing blowing snow in some locations. Strong winds bring a potential for scattered power outages.
Widespread power outages are not likely, as snow is expected to remain light and ice accumulations are not expected to add more weight to power lines than they can handle. Although wind late Friday, particularly in the norther part of our service territory, could cause galloping lines, which may disrupt power.
If you lose your power, please report it to OPPD online or by calling 800-554-6773. The more information we have, the better idea we have of the scale of the issue, which helps the restoration effort. OPPD is ready to respond, as needed.
