Officials with the National Weather Service are warning people in the Midwest to begin preparing right away as a potential ice storm heads into the area this weekend.

On Thursday, NWS officials issued a Winter Storm Watch in many places in our viewing area.

Federal emergency management agency says anyone living in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri should not overlook this upcoming ice  storm.

Officials say it has the potential to cause power outages and make for extremely dangerous road conditions.

They are urging people to make a plan and have necessary supplies for their home and car.
