(Neb.)-Winter Storm Blast Nebraska Panhandle; Western South Dakota
(Chadron)-Winter weather has come out in force today across the Panhandle of Nebraska and Western South Dakota. Heavy snow paired with high winds has made for hazardous road conditions and has forced schools to close early and cancel several activities.
These conditions have prompted a Winter Storm Warning from the National Weather Service in Cheyenne until 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
As of 2 p.m. this afternoon (Friday, Jan. 11th) KCSR measured three inches of snow here at our studio in downtown Chadron as it was continuing to fall. Readjusted forecast have called for somewhere close from six to seven inches of snow.
According to the Nebraska Department of Roads, most all roads in the Panhandle require at least cautious driving while most all roads immediately outside of Chadron are listed as extreme caution. Reports from South Dakota’s DOT listed roads in the far southwest corner of the state as “no travel advised”, from the South Dakota, Nebraska boarder north to Rapid City.
