OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - While flurries will be possible on Wednesday, the greatest chance to see impactful weather this week will be Thursday morning.

Occasional snow showers will move through the metro between 5 AM and noon. That is why we’ve made it a 6 First Alert Weather Day.

These snow showers could briefly be intense though totals likely end up under an inch. Slightly heavier amounts are possible in our northern counties.

Still, with the wind gusting up to 45 miles per hour out of the northwest as the snow is falling, low visibility is a high concern for drivers during the commute. Wind gusts of 25-45 mph look very likely not only during the morning but through the day.

This will be especially true in more open areas where the snow will blow around more easily.
