Most snow bypasses Scotts Bluff County

We are not waking up to a lot of snow this morning, at least locally. Scotts Bluff County Roads Superintendent Bob Bennett says there is no more than an inch or two of snow anywhere in the county.

Bennett's crews are salting and sanding paved intersections while hoping more snow with more moisture falls sometime in the next week when additional systems move through. Bennett says the gravel roads could use a lot more moisture so crews have an easier time keeping them passable.

As much as 8 inches of snow fell in south-central Nebraska overnight, but the storm will continue to drop snow across the state
throughout the day.

The 8 inches of snow that fell in Wilsonville in southwest Nebraska near the border with Kansas was the highest overnight snow total. Holdredge reported seven inches.

Across much of western Nebraska 3-4 inches of snow fell overnight.

National Weather Service forecaster Shawn Jacobs says the snow is starting to pile up.

But the National Weather Service predicts heavy snow will continue to fall throughout the morning in central and western Nebraska. The snow will begin to fall in eastern Nebraska Thursday afternoon.
