Heavy snowfall in north Nebraska, northwest Iowa

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A wintry storm that heaped snow on the Rockies has pushed east into northern Nebraska and northwest Iowa.

The National Weather Service said Wednesday that 10.5 inches of snow has been recorded over 18 hours in Valentine, which sits near the South Dakota state line in northwest Nebraska. To the east in Boyd County, 5.4 inches was recorded in Butte.

The National Weather Service says the snow is moving slowly out of the area, but the cold remains. Wind chills of minus 20 were experienced near Rushville and Gordon in the Nebraska Panhandle.

NWS meteorologist Todd Heitkamp says 4 to 6 inches of snow has fallen in northwest Iowa. Further south in Iowa, freezing drizzle forced delayed starts for schools in Treynor, Woodbine and Underwood.
