SIOUX CITY -- Challenging winter driving conditions are, once again, coming to Siouxland.
Brad Adams, a meteorologist with the Sioux Falls National Weather Service, said the snow will likely begin around 6 a.m. Thursday, though it could start even earlier.
"There is a threat for some of that to start as early as midnight tonight," Adams said.
The snow is expected to last throughout the day on Thursday, with total accumulations perhaps shy of 1.5 inches.
The freezing rain is expected to arrive somewhat later, possibly around 11 a.m. Total freezing rain accumulation is only pegged at less than a tenth of an inch -- but it doesn't take a very thick glaze to cause driving issues.
Adams said the amount of freezing rain forecast could "absolutely" cause driving hazards.
Both the freezing rain and snow are expected to stop around midnight Thursday.
