    As the latest waves of Arctic air begin invade the Central states this week, the setup will lead to snow and plunging temperatures Thursday afternoon into Thursday night around Omaha, Neb.

    A mixture of snow, sleet and rain will begin around the area Thursday midday. Initially, roads will be just wet.

    However, temperatures for the drive home will be lower than for the drive in Thursday. Temperatures will fall throughout the day, road surface temperatures will cool and untreated wet areas will become icy.

    Most of the precipitation that occurs Thursday night will be in the form of snow, and there could be enough to sweep off of vehicles and shovel by Friday morning.

    Temperatures will start the day Friday in the upper teens to the lower 20s and will fail to reach the freezing mark (32 degrees) Friday afternoon.

    A reinforcing blast of cold air will arrive Friday night. In the wake of the second push of Arctic air, temperatures will be no higher than the 20s Saturday.

    Looking ahead, no major travel problems are anticipated this weekend through next week in the immediate area with temperatures slowly moderating. However, there could be some delays with flights originating from the East during the middle of next week, due to an Atlantic coast storm.
