UPDATE: 1:54 a.m. Saturday: A half-inch of snow was recorded at Eppley Airfield in Omaha on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
UPDATE: 8:35 p.m.: Omaha police have stopped responding to property damage traffic accidents.
Snow and slick road conditions have contributed to the crashes.
Police will respond only to personal injury accidents, or accidents where vehicles are immovable, said Officer James Shade.
A burst of snow hit the metro area in time for the Friday evening rush hour. The snow continued into the evening.
"It shouldn't be a huge concern, but it's definitely something to slow down for and be mindful of," said David Pearson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
Accumulated amounts probably won't be significant, perhaps one-half an inch, he said.
After this burst of snow moves through, intermittent light flurries are possible until about 10 p.m., he said.
The weekend promises good weather for February: above freezing on Saturday, and noticeably warmer on Sunday.
Saturday morning is expected to start off chilly, with temperatures forecast in the midteens. Scattered flurries are possible early, but increasing sunshine is expected later in the day. Highs are likely to top out in the upper 30s.
Sunday is likely to be the nicest day in the forecast-able future, Miller said. Sunshine and highs in the mid-50s are forecast for the metro area. The day could be a little breezy.
This weekend's weather is something to take advantage of – a blanket of snow might be on the ground the following weekend.
Next week, daytime highs are likely in the 20s and 30s with overnight lows in the teens.
Snow is likely late in the week, and a bona fide winter storm is possible. A clearer picture of that system should emerge by early next week, according to the weather service.
