Though it's officially spring, the Omaha area's snowier-than-normal season continues this weekend with another round expected Saturday.
Omaha is forecast to receive 3 to 5 inches, assuming the storm maintains its focus on Kansas and Missouri, delivering only a glancing blow to Nebraska.
Snowfall totals have varied across the region this winter, a reflection of the hit-and-miss precipitation that dogged the Midlands during last summer's near-record drought.
Since late fall, Omaha has received 30.9 inches of snow, more than 6 inches above normal, according to the National Weather Service.
The month of March is running ahead of normal, too. As of Friday, Omaha had received 9.5 inches for the month, 6.2 inches above normal.
On the other hand, Lincoln is near-normal for snowfall since last fall, at about 23.1 inches.
Norfolk, which suffered significantly from a lack of rain last summer, is running substantially behind on snow, too. With 19.4 inches, it's about 7 inches shy of normal.
The highest snowfall totals with this weekend's storm are forecast across southern Nebraska.
Travel is expected to be difficult on Interstates 80 and 29. Those traveling into Kansas and Missouri are advised to check conditions before hitting the road.
The National Weather Service is forecasting the snow to move out of the region on Sunday.
Next week will begin with mostly cloudy skies and daytime highs in the 30s in Omaha, before shifting to greater sunshine and warmer weather, with highs approaching 50 by the end of the week.
