Winter Storm Warning Issued, Nearly Two Feet Of Snow Expected

A strong spring storm system is expected to affect a large portion of the central U-S this weekend and could bring heavy snow as far north as central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. The snow and ice pellets expected Saturday night in Eastern Ontario will change to freezing rain by Sunday morning, Environment Canada reports.

The weather maps continue to look scary-snowy for much of southern Minnesota Friday night and Saturday.

Blowing and drifting snow, gusty winds and downed tree limbs could wreak havoc for motorists. The cold air will move in from the northeast. Despite not being included, this region could still see freezing rain, with the best chances of this occurring Saturday night into Sunday morning when temperatures are closer to the 30-32° for lows. "Snow accumulation of 2" - 4" is possible for Bozeman but heavy snow is possible for Bozeman Pass. Lincoln is not included in the Blizzard warning or winter storm watch at this time.

In fact, the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for northern and western Siouxland from Friday evening into Saturday evening.

WHEN.From late Friday night through late Saturday night.

A snowstorm that will likely arrive in the area Sunday could result in more than 10 inches of snow falling locally.

Most of the area encompassing Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, southern and western NY, and Appalachia will see rain. Up to half an inch of ice could accumulate.

While snow totals will be relatively low, wind could create very treacherous driving conditions with gusts in Northwest Kansas forecast to exceed 50 miles per hour.

Rain coverage increases Friday morning.
