Wintry weather expected in Panhandle

By:  Newsroom

A storm system is expected to bring snow and howling winds to the Nebraska Panhandle.

The National Weather Service says the storming likely will start with rain on Saturday and then turn to snow on Saturday night and Sunday. The service was uncertain about how much snow would accumulate.  Northeast winds gusting to 50 mph are expected as well. The wind-blown rain and snow could make travel hazardous.

Severe thunderstorms are expected in the Channel 8 Eyewitness News viewing area Saturday.
