UPDATE – Heavy snow will primarily affect northwestern Iowa this afternoon and evening where an additional 2 to 6 inches of snow is expected between 3 pm and midnight. Additional snowfall over much of southeast South Dakota and southwest Minnesota is expected to be an inch or less.
A strengthening area of low pressure will bring accumulating snow to parts of the region on Friday. Snow will develop west of I-29 early Friday morning and spread into Northwest Iowa by 12-noon. The snow is expected to diminish Friday evening.
Upwards of 4 to 6 inches of snow will be possible from far northeast Nebraska east across parts of northwest Iowa. At the current time, the majority of the snow will fall along the Interstate 90 corridor, with mainly less than an inch further northward. Expect a messy Friday evening commute and be prepared for difficult driving conditions if traveling across Nebraska, Iowa, and far southeast South Dakota as visibility may drop to less than one half mile due to falling snow.
Stay tuned for further forecasts and updates on this developing winter storm.
