...Significant Snowfall Across Western and North Central Nebraska
from Tuesday, January 24th 2017 through Wednesday, January 25th
2017...

.A strong and potent winter storm brought nearly 24 hours of
continuous snowfall to portions of Northwestern, North Central, and
Southwestern Nebraska. Snowfall totals in excess of 6 inches were
common north of Nebraska Highway 2, with 12 to 18 inches over most
of North Central Nebraska. The highest snowfall report as of this
morning, Wednesday, January 25th 2017 was 22 inches 30.0 miles south
southwest of Merriman in Western Cherry county.

In addition to the snow, strong northwest winds gusting to 35 to
nearly 45 mph caused significant blowing and drifting snow. This
created hazardous travel on local roadways from reduced visibilities
and snowpacked roads. Snow drifts in some areas of Northern Nebraska
ranged from 3 to 5 feet.
