Much of Nebraska woke to snow Saturday morning, and the Tri-Cities area was no exception.

According to the National Weather Service 1.3" of snow fell in Grand Island, setting a new record for daily maximum snowfall. The previous record was 0.8" in 1987.

Records were also broken in Hastings. The previous daily maximum snowfall there was also set in 1987, but was broken with 1" of accumulation. A record low temperature was also broken as lows fell to 24 degrees. The old record was 26 degrees in 1919.

Kearney also received about an inch of snow. Much of the snow was already melted in the Grand Island area by Saturday afternoon.

A record was also set outside of the Tri-Cities. North Platte received 13.8" of snow, breaking the previous snowfall record for the month of October. The old record was 13" and was set during the last few days of October in 1896.
