Winter weather advisory issued for Thursday

A Winter Weather Advisory continues through Thursday morning in most of the western counties of North Texas. Starting late Wednesday night, and into Thursday morning, a band of snow will develop in the Central Plains, and move into far southwest, and south central Minnesota prior to noon Thursday. The overnight low will be around 28 degrees.

A mix of freezing drizzle, sleet and some snow will persist through the morning to create an ice glaze on surfaces to start your Thursday, especially on anything that hasn't been treated.

In Lincoln, the winter weather advisory extends from 3 a.m. Thursday to midnight. High near 35. Northeast wind 6 to 8 miles per hour.

Less than a tenth of an inch of ice is forecast in Madison, but even such a small amount can cause slippery conditions. Lows under mostly cloudy skies will be in the 20s, according to NWS.

The heaviest snowfall and sleet is expected near the Iowa border, with an inch of snow or sleet possible. It will be the third wave of freezing rain in as many days. Throughout the day we will see a gradual clearing, but we are left with the chance for a few snow showers. The front will quickly pass, leaving behind only a very slight chance of a stray shower in the afternoon with overcast skies sticking around due to the moisture. These scattered showers through the night could make for slick spots on the roadways for the morning commute. Daytime temperatures in the 40's Friday, though there could be some mixed rain and freezing rain during the late Friday night. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Little or no snow and sleet accumulation is expected.
