While the Metro forecast only calls for a light snow this weekend, other parts of the state are not so lucky.
Roads were covered in snow Friday morning near the South Dakota border and other areas in the Central and Western part of Nebraska are expecting blizzard-like conditions.
4/13 2:45pm CDT Update: moderate to heavy snow continues across much of western NE. Snow rates of 1"/hour are likely, which will allow for quick accumulations on roads. With increasing winds this afternoon, visibility will only decrease making travel very dangerous. #NEwx pic.twitter.com/QWvMJq0BTN
