The Omaha Metro Expects A Snowstorm Through Monday

National Weather Service Meteorologist David Eastlack says the Omaha metro could see snowfall shortly after the morning rush tomorrow.

"During the afternoon is when you're going to see the most intense part of the storm, where you could see possibly an inch of snowfall in an hour, potentially two inches in an hour," Eastlack says.

He tells KFAB Radio News that the snow intensity will continue to increase through the morning hours on Monday. He adds that the snow will be more or less continuous throughout the day.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning until 3 AM on Tuesday in anticipation of tomorrow. They say anywhere from 7 to 13 inches are possible. Eastlack says the snow will be on the heavier side.

"Relatively speaking, temperatures aren't that cold," Eastlack tells KFAB Radio News that the snow likely won't be light and fluffy because of this.

The National Weather Service warns of potentially difficult or even impossible travel and blowing snow. "It does not look like winds are going to be strong in contrast to what they could be if we were expecting a blizzard," Eastlack tells KFAB.

Eastlack says winds of 25 to 35 miles an hour and that reduced visibility remains a possibility.

Eastlack tells KFAB Radio News that they anticipate the storm should recede by Monday night. The National Weather Service says snow may linger on Tuesday, but it will be weaker in contrast to Monday. The National Weather Service says Tuesday will still be cold, and recommends you bundle up.
