The first snowstorm of the season was predicted to drop just 2-4 inches of snow today, but Mother Nature had other plans for Antelope County.
Parts of the area received more than 6 inches of snow on Saturday. With winds gusting at nearly 30 mph out of the northwest, visibility was difficult throughout the area throughout the afternoon and evening.
At 7 p.m. the temperature was at 15 degree but felt like negative 4 degrees thanks to the wind chill.
Periods of light snow are expected throughout the evening, according to the National Weather Service, before moving off to the east between 9 p.m. and midnight.
