Thick ice covers Lincoln amid below-zero wind chills

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Nebraskans know to give themselves extra time when winter weather slams the state, but an 15 additional minutes may not have cut it Thursday morning.

Vehicles were covered in thick layers of ice that required some heavy scraping.

A wind chill advisory was also in effect until noon, so it may have been necessary to take breaks while clearing windows.

The last update from the City of Lincoln, sent just before 5:30 a.m., said crews were busy applying salt with brine to busy streets, as well as school and bus routes.

Officials said the roads ranged from partially snow-covered to wet.

They urged drivers to use caution and be alert for slick spots.
