OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - It’s rather mild out the door with most of us just above freezing to start off this Thursday. There are some rain showers on the map northwest of the metro this morning and that it where most of the precipitation will stay today even after it changes to snow. We’ll wait until after 3pm in the metro for any brief amount of rain that would quickly change to snow as it zips through.

The heaviest snow will fall northwest of the metro with this round. 1 to 3 inches of wet snow is likely around Norfolk and Wayne while the rest of us get a light slushy coating at worst. That would happen in the metro between 3-9pm and likely won’t cause many issues. Temperatures get a chance to jump into the 40s before that all happens.
