(WOWT) - Snow returns to the Heartland Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with light to moderate accumulations expected.
TRACK: Snow will move out of the Nebraska panhandle late Tuesday evening and head into our area overnight. The most likely track of moderate snow would be over western parts of the viewing area, Norfolk south to York, and then into the Omaha metro. However, there is still the potential this track could shift just a little farther north, leading to lower snowfall totals in the metro.
SNOW: From Norfolk south to York and then most areas east will see 2-4", including Omaha and Council Bluffs. But there may be some heavier pockets of snow which could lead to isolated amounts of 5-6" just west of Douglas and Sarpy county. Areas just south I-80 will land between a trace to 2".
TIMING: Right now snow will move in around midnight to our western-most communities. Light to moderate snow will begin to pick up around 1-3 a.m. for the Omaha metro. Light snow will continue to fall through the early afternoon before it moves off to the east. But most of the accumulating snow we see will fall before noon.
