Weather forecasters have issued a winter storm warning for portions of western and central Nebraska.

The warning, which includes McCook, North Platte, Valentine and O'Neill, takes effect at midnight Tuesday.

The National Weather Service says the storm could bring as much as 18 inches of snow to north-central Nebraska by Friday.

Light to moderate snow is expected to start falling Tuesday night in western Nebraska. Winds could pick up to as much as 45 mph by late Wednesday. Forecasters say that could create hazardous travel conditions.

The storm is likely to bring freezing rain to eastern Nebraska, followed by several inches of snow. But with the storm's path uncertain, forecasters aren't yet saying how much snow eastern Nebraska could get.
