LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A late fall snowstorm caused slick conditions on roads and highways in central Nebraska on Friday.

The Nebraska State Patrol said on its Twitter page that several vehicles had slid off Interstate 80 and other roadways as snow fell on the region Friday morning. Heavy snow fell in a large area of central Nebraska, stretching from Franklin to Columbus, the Lincoln Journal Star reported, and several inches had already been reported in some areas by early afternoon Friday.


The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for 13 Nebraska counties, including the cities of Lexington, Grand Island, Kearney, Hastings, Lincoln, Columbus and Omaha. The advisory is set to run through Saturday morning, with up to 5 inches expected in some areas.
