The blizzard warning covers a wide area, including Thurston, Cuming, Colfax, Butler, and Seward counties. While snowfall accumulations will not be extreme, the combination of wind and snow will create very low visibility and risky travel conditions Friday afternoon through Saturday morning.

Heavy snow and strong wind will continue to create white-out blizzard conditions through today and into tonight.
