Don't expect the snow to last too long.
Only a couple more hours, says Mike Pigott, a meteorologist with AccuWeather Inc. The snow coating could reach an inch across the region by the time the flurries are expected to stop this afternoon.
"This is a weaker piece of energy racing ahead of a bigger storm moving to the northwest," Pigott said. "Eventually, that much larger storm will affect the region."
The Omaha area has a much better chance for heavy snow on Wednesday. So those dreaming of a white Christmas, keep your fingers crossed.
