LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - An active weather day is setting up across the 1011 region for Tuesday... we are expecting windy, cold and snowy conditions. Across the state, Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for late Monday night and Tuesday morning and will continue until 6 pm Tuesday.

Tuesday will be an active weather day across the 1011 region as several Winter Weather Advisories take effect late Monday night to early Tuesday morning and continue until 6 PM Tuesday. The band of snow will begin in the northwest late Monday night and push southeastward through the overnight and into Tuesday. Some areas have the possibility to see ice, but there should be little to no accumulation. There will also be blustery conditions with winds gusting to 40-45 mph throughout the day. Therefore blowing snow that causes limited visibility and slick roads are a possibility... so be careful on the road and during your commutes.
