(North Platte, NE) -- Winter weather is impacting western Nebraska and is forcing a number of road closures.

Due to the severe winter storm in the panhandle, the Nebraska Department of Transportation has closed I-80 and Highway 30 from North Platte to the Wyoming border. NDOT says several other highways in Nebraska's panhandle are also closed or impassable. You can find a full map of closures on the NDOT's 551 website.

The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for much of the western part of the state until tomorrow. Some areas could receive between 10 and 20 inches of snow, and wind gusts of 55 miles-per-hour could lead to whiteout conditions. Officials are warning that strong winds could damage trees and power lines.
