Caution is key with Wednesday road conditions

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.

Cold temperatures will keep the roads icy until some sun comes into the area today however more snow is expected, about one to two inches locally and in isolated areas up to three inches.

The previous snowfall totals for the Tri-Cities was 7.1 inches in Hastings, 8.2 in Grand Island and 7.6 inches in Kearney.
