The forecast just keeps getting worse.

The National Weather Service on Friday afternoon updated its forecast and now predicts the Lincoln area could get 3-6 inches of snow by Saturday afternoon. That's up from a prediction of 2-4 inches issued Thursday.

South of Lincoln, areas are forecast to get 4-7 inches, with up to 8 inches possible around Falls City.

The Weather Service said there is the potential for heavy snow in a narrow band stretching from Lancaster County's northern border to south of Beatrice, east into Iowa and west into south-central Nebraska.

There is predicted to be a very sharp cutoff, so areas just outside the band may get 2 inches or less.

Lincoln and much of southeast Nebraska are in a winter weather advisory starting at 6 p.m. Friday and going until noon Saturday.

Precipitation may start out as rain or freezing drizzle before turning to snow. The heaviest snow is forecast to fall overnight.
