The Channel 6 Weather Authority was reporting at 9 p.m. Thursday that about six inches of snow had fallen in the Omaha Metro. While most of the moderate snow had moved through there existed a potential to add another inch through the overnight hours.
Light snow was forecast to continue until around daybreak Friday. Cloudy skies are forecast for Friday with a high of around 25 degrees.
Most schools in the area either closed completely for Friday or called for late starts.
The Thursday evening commute was noticeably lighter than in some previous storms. It appeared many people had gone to work earlier than usual on Thursday and then left early for home.
Omaha snow removal officials said Wednesday they expected to have 200 pieces of equipment on the streets. At that time they were forecasting that crews might not be in residential areas until Friday afternoon at the earliest.
An odd/even parking snow emergency went into effect at 12:01 Friday morning. Cars needed to be parked on the side of the street with even-numbered addresses. At 12:01 Saturday cars would need to be parked on the odd-numbered side of the street. The emergency remains in effect until the city cancels it.
