SIOUX CITY | Forecasts on Wednesday showed much of Northwest Iowa, including Sioux City, is in for another blast of snow.
The heaviest part of the storm is expected to hit Siouxland on Thursday afternoon, dumping 2-5 inches of snow in Sioux City by Friday morning, said Todd Heitkamp, National Weather Service meteorologist.
The snowfall will be fairly uniform, he said, although total amounts will taper off to the north and south.
Travelers could experience some blowing snow. However, winds are expected to be only around 10 mph, Heitkamp said.
That will be a relief to area motorists who weathered strong winds and blizzard conditions a couple of weeks ago, when whiteout conditions closed interstate highways in parts of South Dakota and Minnesota.
The chance of snow will decrease from 100 percent Thursday and Thursday night to 40 percent Friday, tapering off later in the day. The forecast calls for a sunny, if cold, weekend, with highs in the 20s.
