Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved out of the southern rockies and moved slowly across Nebraska. Due to the slow movement of the system, significant accumulations of freezing rain, sleet and snow occurred. Along and east of Highway 83, freezing rain began during the evening of December 19th, spreading northeastward and continuing throughout much of the day December 20th. Ice accumulated from one quarter to one half inch causing downed power lines and numerous broken tree branches. Some residents lost power for up to 40 hours. Snow followed the freezing rain with accumulations ranging from 3 to 8 inches. Areas to the west of Highway 83 experienced blizzard conditions with heavy snowfall of 6 to 11 inches and wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph.
Event Narrative Heavy snow with total amounts of 8 to 10 inches combined with north winds of 30 to 40 mph on December 20th. This forced the closure of Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 30 west of Big Springs.
