More cold, wintry precipitation could be expected this weekend


According to the National Weather Service, widespread snowfall between 2-4 inches is expected primarily in areas along and south of Interstate 80 in Iowa.

The weather service said there's a 90 percent chance for more snow Friday night and then 70 percent for Saturday and Saturday night and 60 percent for Sunday.

The precipitation is expected to be light so the potential for any heavy snow, heavy rain or heavy accumulating ice is not expected. Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing in most areas Saturday night.

Snow continues to fall in northwest in, while freezing rain and sleet is forecast for northeast in, along with light snow.

Winter weather this week killed people in accidents in the Midwest, including six in Iowa, two in Missouri and one in Montana, local media in those states reported. Temperatures are expected to rebound into the 40s as soon as Monday, so any snow accumulation won't last long. The tentative forecast shows only light snow.

In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city was gearing up for three more rounds of snow through the weekend after crews dealt with 6 to 7 inches overnight.


Freezing rain may cause light icing on roadways and surfaces, making for unsafe travel conditions.

Temperatures were warmer Friday with a high of 56 degrees and a low of 29 degrees Friday night.

Less than an inch of new snow is possible today, forecasters said.

As of Friday morning, the National Service received reports of between 9 and 11 inches of snow over a 24-hour period in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Cloud cover will hang around throughout our Sunday morning, but the sky will gradually clear that afternoon.
