The snow appears to have moved out of the area, but it’s still windy. Slick roads and sidewalks remain a concern.

Hazardous travel conditions are expected throughout the day Thursday due to freezing drizzle/rain, stiff winds and snow across most of eastern Nebraska, western Iowa and northwest Missouri.

A winter weather advisory that was in effect for the entire area was cancelled early in the afternoon.

Schools throughout the region cancelled classes Thursday, but Lincoln schools remain open.¬†Here’s a full list of closings¬†reported to hunter@newschannelnebraska.com.
