SIOUX CITY -- Snow, possibly mixed with freezing drizzle, may be greeting Sioux Cityans driving home from work, Monday afternoon.
"While new snow accumulation will likely be less than 1 inch on Monday, the introduction of ice may make streets slick," said Jeff Chapman, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.
However, he said people around Spencer and Storm Lake will likely see as much as 3 inches of the white stuff. Luckily, the snow band is a fast-mover, likely to be out of Siouxland by midnight.
"Tuesday will begin cloudy before a gradual clearing," Chapman said. "While sunny skies and a high of 24 might sound nice; a blustery northwest wind gusting to 40 mph will keep things chilly."
Wednesday and Thursday will be dry, with highs mainly in the 20s. The next chance for snow will come Thursday night, lasting into Friday morning.
"Following a pattern, patchy snow will move into Siouxland Thursday night," Chapman said. "After that, expect a windy Friday with areas of blowing snow to be likely."
