SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. -- Winter found its way to Nebraska in several different forms on Thursday.

While much of Nebraska was dealing with freezing rain and slick conditions, the Panhandle got a little more than that, with snow landing in Panhandle locations like Scottsbluff, Chadron and Ellsworth, among others.

Parts of the Panhandle got up to three inches of snow. Slightly further east, Valentine got a record seven inches of snow.

Much of that snow could be gone by the start of next week, with Panhandle north central Nebraska temperatures expected to reach the high 40s and low 50s this weekend.

Meanwhile, central Nebraska may not have had as much snow as further west, but that doesn't mean the road conditions were any less hairy.

Accidents were reported throughout the late morning and early afternoon on Interstate 80, including in places like Gibbon, Aurora and elsewhere.

The Nebraska State Patrol advised staying on the roads unless absolutely necessary.

Northeast Nebraska dealt with several crashes, including in Stanton County and Columbus.

The crash in Stanton County caused power outages that were being worked on Thursday night be Elkhorn Rural Power District.

Due to the unsafe driving conditions, North Fork Area Transit announced that it would be canceling nighttime service on Thursday. NFAT leaders said they would resume normal hours on Friday.

Cody Thomas from the Nebraska State Patrol said NSP troopers  responded to over 30 crashes and 50 motorist assists on Thursday.
