And in anticipation of Wednesday's storm the city of Grand Island and the city of Kearney have already declared snow emergencies.
Both take effect at noon Wednesday and will remain in effect until noon tomorrow.
During a snow emergency no vehicles may be parked on the city's snow emergency routes.
Those routes are marked with a red, white, and blue snow emergency sign.
Parked or abandoned vehicles on these routes will be towed and ticketed.
The City of Hastings has not yet issued a snow emergency, but is prepared to do so.
Hastings Street Superintendent Richard Douglas says the final decision will be made by noon Wednesday.
He says the city is ready for the first storm of the season. But above all comes safety for his 17 drivers.
"We'll be out there and trying to keep emergency snow routes open as long as it's safe for our guys to be out there," said Douglas. "If it gets to a point where it's no longer visibly safe for us to be out there, we'll pull our guys off the streets until we can get back out there."
Snow Emergency routes will be cleared first and after 3 inches of snow have fallen, the department will make a plan to clear residential streets.
