LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A Snow Emergency is in effect for the City of Lincoln, and will expire at 5 a.m. on Thursday.

Also, as of Wednesday at 10 p.m., parking has been banned on both sides of emergency snow routes, arterial streets, school and bus routes, and that expires at 5 a.m. Thursday, too. Maps of these routes are available at under the “Parking Bans & Ordinances” tab.

Crews will remain on patrol overnight plowing slush and treating emergency snow routes and arterial streets with granular salt pre-wet with brine.

Street conditions range from wet to partially slush covered, with the potential for addition overnight snow accumulations. Drivers should watch for for slick spots and refrozen areas, especially on untreated surfaces as overnight temperatures fall below freezing.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday. Mixed precipitation, additional snow accumulation up to 2 inches, light icing, and winds up to 40 mph are possible.

StarTran buses are operating during the snowstorm. Riders are encouraged to plan for delays and dress appropriately for winter conditions. Lincoln residents who live on bus routes are urged to clear sidewalks promptly for easy and safe access to and from bus stops. This effort will also help prevent bus delays.

Freezing drizzle in Lincoln around 5 p.m. Wednesday.
