At least the latest snowfall is a lot easier to clear off your driveway.
The Omaha area is expected to receive about a half-inch of light, fluffy snow when it's all said and done later Friday morning, said Josh Boustead, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Valley, Neb.
The powdery snow that began falling Thursday is much lighter than the roughly six inches of wet, heavy snow that the Omaha area received last week. However, Friday's snow left some roads and sidewalks slick that hadn't been treated with salt, Boustead said.
Last week's precipitation had a liquid-to-snow ratio of 10 to 1, he said, which means 10 inches of snow would equal one inch of water. Friday's light dusting had a ratio of 20 to one, or 20 inches of the powder would equal one inch of water.
The Omaha area should see a high temperature in the lower to mid-20s Friday and a low around seven tonight, he said.
The weekend will gradually warm up, Boustead added, with highs Saturday around 25 and around normal Sunday at 33 degrees. Sunday's low temp should be around 11 to 12 degrees, he said.
And don't look for more precipitation over the weekend and beyond.
“We have a dry forecast through Thursday,'' Boustead said.
