The light snowstorm that dusted the metro area New Year's Day also caused a flurry of accidents.
A Douglas County 911 dispatcher said Wednesday night they hadn't totaled up the number of serious accidents, but Omaha police were too busy most of the day to respond to non-injury accidents.
Officers started taking routine accident reports again at 5:35 p.m.
One to 2 inches fell over the metro area, and city crews worked overnight to clear the snowy, slick roads.
Thursday's commute will be decent, with the main routes mostly clear, said Scott McIntyre, streets maintenance engineer with the City of Omaha.
“For the most part, the streets are going to be in good condition,” he said. “Residential streets will still have some snowpack on them, but they'll be drivable.”
Things will warm up a bit this weekend before a cold snap hits Monday.
Thursday, the high will be around 9 degrees, with north winds blowing at 10 mph and a subzero wind chill.
Expect highs in the upper 20s this weekend, then temperatures falling to around zero Monday, National Weather Service meteorologist Bryon Miller said.
