VALLEY, Neb. -- Of Nebraska's 93 counties, 83 are in a winter weather advisory heading into Tuesday.

The winter weather is expected to start in the Panhandle late Monday night before drifting east and hitting much of the rest of the state. The far southwest appears to be the only part of Nebraska currently not projected to get hit with winter weather. The storm is anticipated to reach the eastern third of Nebraska by early Tuesday afternoon.

Slush, freezing rain, drizzle, and snow accumulation of 1-5 inches are projected across much of the state. Wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour are also a possibility.

The eastern third of Nebraska is expected to see up to 1-3 inches of snow, while the Panhandle could see up to five inches of snow. The early-morning snow in western Nebraska could affect visibility, especially during the morning commute. 

The conditions are expected to directly impact roadways, causing slippery surfaces. Central Nebraska is expected to see freezing rain and drizzle through the latter stages of the morning.

The winter weather advisories are currently set to expire at 6:00 p.m. CT/5:00 p.m. MT.

The National Weather Service advises exercising caution on the roadways late Monday and throughout Tuesday.
