Blizzard Bearing Down Tonight & Friday

Weather Forecasts

We’ll have a cloudy and cool Thursday with a high of 44° and a few passing sprinkles/flurries.

As we head toward this evening, precipitation will intensify. At first, it’ll be warm enough that most of it will fall in the form of rain. Near Midnight tonight, we’ll see a complete transition over to snow. The heaviest snow will pile up during the morning hours of Friday – then it’ll pace down during the afternoon.

Snow totals will range from 6 to 10 inches for the Sioux City metro. Northern communities including Yankton, Sioux Falls, and the Iowa Great Lakes are in line for 10 to 15 inches. Southern Siouxland will stack up about 3 to 6 inches of accumulation. BLIZZARD WARNINGS, WINTER STORM WARNINGS, AND WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES are in place for the entirety of the region lasting from Thursday night through Friday night. Travel at times will be very hazardous if not impossible given low visibilities related to 45 MPH wind gusts. Be extremely cautious if you must travel.

The weekend and early next week should be seasonal and quiet. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s on Saturday and Sunday. We’ll watch those rise into the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday. There’s a 40% chance of a light mix Tuesday.
