UPDATE:

A blizzard warning for Wednesday night through Thursday morning remained in effect for central Iowa, including Des Moines, because of expected sustained wind gusts of more than 35 mph and snow amounts likely near 10 inches, Scott Dergan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Valley, said early Wednesday.

“There will be near-blizzard conditions’’ for eastern Nebraska and western Iowa, he said.

North Platte is expecting six inches, Dergan said, with six to eight, including 10 inches in some areas, along Interstate 80 from about Grand Island east to Des Moines.

“The amounts will get worse as the storm heads east,’’ he said. “It (snow) will start coming down pretty good by 6 p.m.’’ in the Omaha area.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning on Wednesday, and the City of Omaha announced a snow emergency as the region prepared for a powerful blast of winter weather.

The blizzard warning lasts until noon Thursday, and the weather is expected to deteriorate rapidly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, said Cathy Zapotocny, meteorologist with the National Weather Service office that serves Omaha.

The Nebraska Department of Roads is urging extreme caution on all roads in west-central Nebraska, including I-80 and Highway 83.

Six to 10 inches of snow is forecast for Lincoln and Omaha, with greater amounts expected in Iowa, according to the weather service. Winds are expected to gust above 30 mph, and the snow could last eight to 10 hours. White-out conditions and single-digit wind chills are possible.

6. Most of the storm will stay north of us in KC, Mo

Rain tonite and maybe 2" by the time it's over. Wind will probably be worse than the snow.
