Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved out of the southern rockies and into western and north central Nebraska on Friday, December 29th. Due to abundant moisture drawn in from the Gulf of Mexico, significant snow accumulations occurred. Some freezing rain occurred prior to a changeover to snow across portions of Boyd, Holt, Garfield, Wheeler, Frontier, and Custer counties where ice accumulations up to a quarter inch were observed. This caused some downed power lines and broken tree branches. Snow began to fall across western Nebraska during the early morning hours Friday and spread into eastern portions of north central Nebraska by late Friday morning. The snow continued Friday night before diminishing during the morning Saturday, December 30th. Snow accumulations of 6 to 13 inches combined with winds of 15 to 30 mph causing blowing and drifting snow.
Event Narrative Storm total snowfall amounts ranged from 8 to 13 inches. The snow combined with winds of 15 to 30 mph causing blowing and drifting.
