The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning is in effect from 1 p.m. Friday to 7p.m. Saturday for a good portion of western and central Nebraska.

They say a moisture laden low pressure area over the Central Plains States will amble towards the lower Great Lakes this weekend pumping in cold Arctic air, forcing temperatures below freezing. Up to half an inch of ice could accumulate.

The best chances for impacts from sleet or freezing rain will be in the Winter Storm Watch zones and the chances run through Sunday morning. A few inches accumulation are possible.
