First Alert Day holds for Friday evening snow potential

By  | 

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A First Alert Day has been issued by the 6 News First Alert Weather Team for Friday, January 10, 2020.

Colder air surges back into the region Friday, with temperatures dropping into the 20s quickly during the morning hours. As temperatures fall and moisture moves into the area, we should see snow showers Friday afternoon and evening, therefore impacting your Friday commute home. For this reason, we have issued a First Alert Day Friday. We’ll also have gusty winds from the north, so blowing snow is a possible concern as well.

There are still inconsistencies with data and some limiting factors on where the greatest snowfall amounts will land, but confidence is increasing a bit that we'll see at least some snow

At this time, we're looking for about an inch or so possible along I-80, and perhaps a few spots up to 2" closer to the Kansas border. We did note a slight bump in some of the totals on the early morning models today. So a few more adjustments may be needed as the last couple of model runs come in this evening and Friday morning.

Stay tuned to 6 News for the latest on this First Alert Day!
