Another Round of Snow, Another Round of Slick Roads Possibly

February 22, 2018 03:10 PM

The next round of snow is here! While most of this will fall as snow, I can't rule out a little freezing drizzle for our neighbors in northern IA, perhaps even clipping parts of southern MN. A glaze of ice will be possible, getting the roads a little slick later this evening.


While steady snow showers will continue falling this evening, our heaviest snow will fall as we sleep, clearing out by daybreak. 1-3" for most of us, with locations along and to the west of I-35 getting into the 4"+ range. 

The rest of Friday will be our calm before the next storm, with temps tumbling from the 30s early to the low 20s by dinner. But, as I mentioned, another storm is on the way for the weekend, one worth paying very close attention to. 

This next storm will move through the Upper Midwest Saturday into Sunday morning. We look to be on the cool side of the track this time, meaning we'll likely see just snow this time, but a light mix will be possible early in the storm, with snow accumulations expected. The way it sits now, the heaviest snow looks to miss us just to the NW, however, our accumulating snow along with a light mix and strong NW winds on the back side of the storm, travel will likely see impacts this weekend.
