Wintry weather is bearing down on Nebraska, with chilly temperatures and snow in the forecast for much of the state.

The National Weather Service says snow that could be heavy at times will begin falling in western Nebraska on Friday night and continue into Saturday. A winter storm watch has been issued for areas including Scottsbluff, Gering and Alliance.

Central and southern portions of the Panhandle could see as much as eight inches. Lows could dip into the single digits and teens.

The weather service says the wintry weather will move east late Friday into Saturday and could bring light snow.

Eastern Nebraska can expect to see a hard freeze Saturday night, with lows in the 20s. Forecasters say the chilly temperatures will be at or near record lows.
