A narrow band of snow developed across the WOWT 6 News viewing area Wednesday, making for some slick spots on roads.

Although Omaha may see some flurries, the majority of the snow will fall south of the metro.

Snowflakes continue to fly around Lincoln, Beatrice, Nebraska City and Red Oak. A weak disturbance drifting through has triggered the snow and may bring nearly an inch to some locales. Be on the lookout for some tricky travels in parts of Lancaster, Cass and Otoe counties.

After a stretch of colder than normal conditions, the tables are about to turn for warmer weather. Temperatures have been stuck in the deep freeze for three days, but southerly winds will soon start flowing helping temperatures to recover to more seasonable conditions.

Afternoon highs Wednesday will still be quite chilly, near 20 degrees, but then Thursday will be the beginning of a warming trend with highs in the upper 20s.

It gets even warmer with highs in the 30s for Friday and low-to-mid 40s over the weekend. So if you're suffering from cabin fever, it looks like you will have the chance to get out and enjoy some milder weather.
