PHOTOS: Blizzard dumps snow across western Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – It’s a winter wonderland, but just in the western half of Nebraska.

Several feet of snow were dumped in the western part of the state, thanks to a blizzard that began Monday night.

Channel 8’s Chief Meteorologist Rusty Dawkins said the storm is expected to die down Wednesday night into early Thursday.

Several Nebraskans sent Channel 8 photos from all over the state, including Rushville, Scottsbluff and Chadron.

The photos show cars, homes and more covered in a blanket of snow, leaving many Nebraskans stuck.

Snow also caused road conditions to deteriorate, leading to the closure of Interstate 80 and several other roads.

Westbound I-80 has since reopened from North Platte to the junction with Interstate 76, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
