A strong winter storm system will likely move over the central plains this weekend, and affect the area with the potential for heavy snow by Saturday afternoon. The precipitation should begin as a mixture of rain and snow by later Friday night into early Saturday, with mostly rain expected south of Interstate 90.
However, any mixture should change quickly to all snow from northwest to southeast over the area on Saturday. The snow could become quite heavy, especially for areas along and south of Interstate 90. This snow will continue through Sunday morning across northwest Iowa. Areas of blowing snow could also be a problem with strong winds likely. Be sure to keep up with the latest forecasts and statements as the exact track of the storm system becomes more clear.
