Snow may impact weekend travel after Thanksgiving


OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Saturday and Sunday are 6 First Alert Weather Days. The 6 First Alert Weather Team is tracking a system that brings snow chances over the weekend, potentially impacting travel locally and regionally after the Thanksgiving holiday.


This system will sit over Colorado and eventually move into Western and Central Nebraska and W Kansas Friday bringing some more substantial snow totals to these locations. Eventually the system pushes E and will move into E Nebraska on Saturday evening with snow chances picking up after 4PM.

Chances spread E through the night into W Iowa with the heaviest snow likely falling late/overnight. The snow will end early Sunday AM but impacts to the roads, likely a few slick areas, could last through the first half of the day and travel could see impacts locally from Saturday evening through Sunday morning.

At this point snow totals do not look incredibly heavy… if the system stays on track most of E Nebraska and W Iowa should see at least 1″ with higher totals possible S of the Metro. Enough that roads may become slick.
