Beginning at 9 p.m. Tuesday, 15 City crews will apply anti-ice brine to arterial streets, school and bus routes. Crews will monitor conditions and additional resources will be deployed as necessary.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory effective from midnight Tuesday to 1 a.m., Thursday, October 31. Snow accumulation up to three inches is possible. Depending on the amount of precipitation overnight Tuesday, slick road conditions are possible Wednesday morning.

Tuesday we will be in between storm systems. Look for cold temperatures, cloudy skies and flurries this afternoon

The next system is expected to pack more of a punch with snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3" possible in southeastern and south central Nebraska and even higher amounts in southwestern Nebraska.
