Just enough snow fell Saturday in Omaha for children to bring out the sleds, discs and inner tubes and tackle the hill at St. Robert Bellarmine School near 120th and Pacific Streets.
The National Weather Service reported that the city officially received 1.4 inches. The heaviest accumulation in the region occurred in Richardson County, with 2.5 inches, in southeast Nebraska.
Even the inch or so recorded in Omaha can be considered significant for this winter. The last significant snow in Omaha fell Jan. 1, with 1.2 inches recorded.
Meteorologist Dave Fobert of the weather service said highs today in the Omaha area would be in the low 20s with clear skies.
The city's next chance for precipitation comes Monday night. It will be one of the stronger storm systems the area has recently seen, with the potential for “significant snow,'' Fobert said.
