Lincoln again facing freezing drizzle tonight, snow and wind Tuesday


Lincoln is facing the potential of a winter storm for the third time in less than two weeks.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of Nebraska, including Lancaster County, beginning a 6 p.m. Monday and going until 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The forecast for the Lincoln area calls for about an inch of snow, but ice may be the bigger issue.

The National Weather Service is predicting freezing drizzle beginning as early as Monday afternoon west of Lincoln and spreading east by Monday night. In the Lincoln area, the freezing drizzle is likely to arrive early Tuesday morning.

The Weather Service says areas north of Lincoln could get up to two-tenths of an inch of ice, while areas to the south could get up to one-tenth of an inch. Lincoln is right on the dividing line.

Snow may not come until Tuesday, but what does fall could present travel problems because of high winds. The Weather Service says maximum wind gusts on Tuesday could be close to 40 mph, with sustained winds of about 20 to 25 mph.

Temperatures are expected to rise through the night to the lower 30s Tuesday morning.

Baby, it's cold outside
