But drivers are dealing with gusty winds, low visibilities and snow packed roads as they travel on the interstate.
"It's terrible," Elden Ellis, who was eastbound on I-80 said. "Its cause of the wind and the snow...you can't see."
Some braved the storm and decided to travel anyway.
Bob Humes and his wife were driving through western Nebraska Wednesday night when they got stuck in Kearney due to the snow. They say the interstate eastbound wasn't too bad as of Thursday morning, but wind was causing some problems.
"Wind is a big factor," Humes said. "It was all the time, blowing up dust."
The State Department of Roads has a majority of highways and the interstate marked as use with extreme caution, which is one step away from being shut down.
Humes says they hit a few slick spots and saw a number of cars and semi trucks in ditches.
"One was jackknifed and the other one was just sitting there. Two guys sitting in there waiting to be rescued."
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office advises that you stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.
Sheriff Terry Wagner says if you do decide to drive, keep supplies like a blanket, flashlight and water in your car, keep your windshield and headlights clear, and slow down and give yourself plenty of room. If you do find yourself in the ditch, stay inside your car.
"That's the safest place," Sheriff Wagner said. "Make sure their cell phone battery is charged up and have a charger with them so that if they go into the ditch and get stranded and if we can't get to them for a while, that they have the ability to keep warm."
Travelers can always call 511 to get the latest road conditions.
