Dma Watch Warning 1

A winter storm warning has been issued for Lincoln and Lancaster County.

The warning is in effect through late Thursday evening.

Storm Alert Team Chief Meteorologist Dean Wysocki says snow should start accumulating around mid-morning and last through the afternoon. While the morning commute shouldn’t be impacted too badly, he thinks the afternoon commute could “get tricky.”

“This could be our biggest snow of the season,” Wysocki said, noting that the biggest snow event so far has only resulted in about two inches of accumulation. Models show a range of 1-7 inches.

Crews will begin treating Lincoln streets ahead of projected snowfall Thursday morning.

Beginning at 4 a.m., 20 crews will begin applying granular salt pre-wet with brine to arterial streets and bus routes.

Additional information about City streets and snow removal is available at snow.lincoln.ne.gov.  You can also call the Traffic Management Center at 402-441-7644.
