SIOUX CITY | Some Siouxlanders could wake up to the first snow of the season on Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.
The chances will come a couple days after what looks to be a beautiful Wednesday with highs near 70 before temperatures plummet to the 30s by Friday.
Brad Adams, observing program leader with the NWS Sioux Falls, said snow chances will come Thursday night to areas north and east of Sioux City including Le Mars, Orange City, Cherokee, Primghar and Sanborn. Some areas could receive about an inch. Chances are lower in Sioux City.
"The further east and north you go, the better the chances," Adams said.
