A spring storm is bringing winter back to the Nebraska Panhandle.

Scottsbluff radio station KNEB says Thursday 8 inches of heavy snow fell Thursday near Minatare and Bayard, which are about 15 miles apart.

Minatare City Clerk Carolyn Nelson says the snow began early and just kept piling up. She says the streets were filled with slushy snow and the trees were sagging, but no electrical problems were reported.

KNEB says the National Weather Service reported no snow, or just a few inches in the rest of the Panhandle.

The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for most of western Nebraska until Friday evening. Up to a foot of heavy, wet snow is possible. Strong winds, gusting up 50 mph, are likely by Friday morning.
