Motorists advised to use caution with latest winter storm

Motorists are advised to use caution as they travel this weekend through Wyoming, the Panhandle, and much of the rest of Nebraska.

As of  7:30  p.m. MST SATURDAY, roadways in Dawes, Box Butte, Sheridan and Sioux counties were covered with mixture of slush, snow and ice according to Nebraska 511. Similar road conditions were being reported in parts of Scotts Bluff and Morrill counties as the storm progresses. NDOT says travel is not advised on Highway 71 north from Scottsbluff to Harrison Road, or on Highway 29 north out of Mitchell to Cut Across Road.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for the northern Panhandle counties, while a Winter Weather Advisory is still in effect for the remainder of the Panhandle, as well as much of the northern two-thirds of the state. Meanwhile, a Blizzard Warning takes effect at midnight for extreme southwest Nebraska, though the south-central part of the state, including Lexington and Kearney, as well as the counties along and south of Interstate 80 to Lincoln, plus the southeast corner of the state.

In Wyoming, eastbound I-80 is closed from Rock Springs to Cheyenne, and westbound closed from Cheyenne to Rawlins. No high profile vehicles are allowed on I-25 between Cheyenne and the Colorado state line due to high winds, while I-25 is closed between Casper and Buffalo due to winter conditions.
