SIOUX CITY -- The challenging weather conditions of Monday morning weren't repeated on Tuesday. 

Brad Adams, a meteorologist with the Sioux Falls National Weather Service, said Sioux City is  "just about out of the woods here" with the precipitation systems that began the week.

The second round of snow Tuesday morning brought only a trace of snow, he said, and it stopped falling around 4 a.m. There was also a very light glaze of freezing rain. 

Despite the more-forgiving weather Tuesday morning, several area schools were delayed, including Le Mars, MMCRU, Cherokee and Emerson-Hubbard. 

Very frigid air temperatures are expected Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as well -- the overnight low of -4 degrees could feel as bitter as -18 degrees with wind chill before dawn Wednesday. 

Another round of winter weather is expected to come to Siouxland, beginning Thursday afternoon. Adams said the Thursday storm could bring some wintry mix at the beginning hours of the storm, before transitioning to snow. 

Less than an inch of snow is expected with that system, though areas around Le Mars could see more.
