A strong storm is still predicted to move through the North Platte, but it is developing very slowly.

A skiff of snow fell Wednesday morning, then stopped.


On Wednesday afternoon, the weather service in North Platte predicted less than one inch before nightfall, with bitter winds and below zero wind-chills.

Snow is assured Wednesday night (2-4 inches), with 3-7 inches possible on Thursday, the weather service said.


Travelers should be alert to weather conditions.

The storm is expected to affect a large portion of the Great Plains from Kansas across Nebraska and into South Dakota. It could bring much needed moisture but could be deadly for baby calves.

The heaviest snow is forecast east of a line from Imperial to Valentine and will be driven by 15-25 mile per hour winds with higher gusts, the weather service said.

High temperatures in the teens and lower 20s began Tuesday, with lows in the single digits, driving the wind-chill factor to around zero.

As is always the case with weather there is uncertainty as to where the heaviest snow accumulations will occur. Anyone that must travel on Wednesday and Thursday should continue to monitor the forecast as details become clearer.

You can dial 511 for an automated system of road conditions or go to https://statepatrol.nebraska.gov/ to view a map and access camera images of road conditions.

High temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for nearly a week, the weather service said.
