Snow covers much of eastern Nebraska, western Iowa

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Snow and gusty winds are slicking roads and slowing travel in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.

A winter weather advisory remained in effect Wednesday morning for the southeastern quarter of Nebraska. Weather forecasters estimated that up to 3 inches of snow had fallen by early Wednesday morning in the Omaha area, while Lincoln officials reported around 6 inches of snow.

In western Iowa, roadways were covered with a mix of snow and ice, and the Iowa Department of Transportation warned of treacherous driving conditions.

Most schools from Lincoln to Omaha in Nebraska and in western Iowa canceled Wednesday classes.

A winter storm warning was issued for parts of central Iowa later Wednesday, with Cedar Rapids forecast to get up to 7 inches of snow.
