A strong wind storm was expected to blow into the region in the preceding hours on Thursday and last until Friday.
With that will probably come difficult travel conditions, fallen wooden legs and scattered power outages.
The National Weather Service warns of possible snowstorms Thursday night through Friday.
The Weather Service has issued wind and storm warnings from Montana to Wisconsin and from the Canadian border to Oklahoma.
The winds were expected to subside briefly Thursday morning before picking up again late in the morning. The National Weather Service says gusts of up to 55 km / h are possible in the Omaha metro area Thursday through Friday.
The total snowfall is expected to be 1 to 2 inches in the Omaha area.
The areas most likely to see the worst travel conditions are north of Omaha, where heavier snow is expected, Rossio said. The winds are expected to decrease on Friday night.
When the storm moves out, Omaha will likely see several days with highs in the 30s and a mix of sun and clouds.
