HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Tuesday's storm has passed, but the aftermath remains as road conditions will present problems for Nebraska drivers Wednesday.
Difficult road conditions on Wednesday come from snow, drifts and ice
With a clear layer of ice covered by a thin layer of snow, mixed with snow drifts turning onto side streets and snow piles built up from snow plows, caution is key as drivers begin to travel for the Holiday.
The weather continues to cause slide offs on roadways, affect air travel and cause accidents. Nebraska law enforcement urges drivers to slow down, leave more space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you and give yourself more time to arrive to your destination.

Take it slow if you’re moving about this morning.
And if there’s snow on your car, clear it all off before driving, not just a tiny square on the windshield. pic.twitter.com/VkxR6Mtc4y
