On Saturday February 4, 2012 a potent winter storm moved off the High Plains and produced copious amounts of snow across portions of central and eastern Nebraska. Northeastern Kansas found itself on the southern fringe of the heavier snow. Areas of Republic County reported 3 to 5 inches of snow, but areas east and south of there only received between 1 and 3 inches. Light snow fell overnight as far south as Interstate 70, but no accumulations were recorded that far south.
