Meteorologists expect the snow will begin falling in eastern Nebraska by late Thursday morning or early afternoon. Accumulation estimates range from 8 to 12 inches in eastern Nebraska, with less snow expected in Iowa.
It has been a long-time since Norfolk received significant snowfall - but it looks as if six or more inches could fall today. The Norfolk Police Division would like to remind residents that - if a snow emergency is declared - parking is allowed only on the even numbered side of the street where parking is normally allowed on both sides. Residents are urged to monitor local radio and television for snow emergency notification. If a snow emergency is declared, that information will also be posted to the city of Norfolk's Facebook page and on Twitter.

The dorms nearest to the bottle were placed in lockdown for about 15 minutes until the device was secured. The college's executive vice-president, Mary Honke says four students are being questioned in regards to the incident. Honke says Northeast Community College is cooperating with the Norfolk Police and Fire Division investigation.
