OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Due to the sleet, freezing rain and snow over the past 24 hours, roads will be icy in spots for the morning commute.

Be prepared for slippery conditions as you head out the door!

Temperatures have plummeted overnight and they will struggle to warm during the daytime hours, only peaking in the mid teens.

On top of that, northwest winds will be gusting in the 30-35 miles per hour range through the morning, pushing wind chills into the teens below zero.

While there will be a little improvement in the afternoon, it will remain cold and breezy.

Overnight, cloud cover will increase again and we will start to bring in some snow showers as we approach dawn.
