We're watching a strong storm system which is forecast to affect the region later this week. Rain is expected to change to snow Thursday into Thursday night with the potential for a few-hour period of blizzard conditions in northeast NE where travel could become hazardous.
We're providing more volunteer #Skywayn storm spotter training this week. We'll be visiting Sidney, IA, and Columbus, Nebraska City, and Falls City in eastern NE. Classes are free and open to the public. Join us and help save lives. #newx #iawx

Mammatus clouds seen from NWS Omaha/Valley. The thunderstorm was in Burt County and this is underneath the anvil cloud that extended well to the south.
One of the most common questions we get on snowfall posts is "how much for [my city]." So no one feels left out, we went ahead and included every city on this map. But for real, check out to get a forecast for your location.
It's been confirmed that this snow band is originating from 2 plants in Norfolk. The steam produced there is essentially acting to add moisture and warmth to the clouds creating the snow. Had reports of large flake and up to 1in. If you live in that area how much have you seen?
You may encounter some broken links on our webpage, but our forecasters remain hard at work forecasting and issuing warnings and products. We've moved operations to Hastings, NE. Thanks, !
