A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the entire viewing area from Saturday afternoon through 1 PM Sunday. Travel will be difficult with snow that will be heavy at times and can reduce visibility, but there can also be a wintry mix at times too.
Today will start off with plenty of clouds and there can be a stray snow shower or flurry to start the day along and north of I-80. Snow showers will develop around lunch time and will start to get steadier as we get into the evening hours. The snow will continue into the overnight hours and into the first part of Sunday. The snow will be heavy at times especially through the central part of the viewing area.
The snow will come to an end Sunday, but travel will still be difficult as crews will need time to clean the roads. On top of that it will become quite cold and windy, which will cause snow to blow and drift back onto the road ways. High temperatures will be in the 20s to near 30-degree mark early Sunday, but we will be down into the teens by the afternoon.
Sunday night will have low temperatures falling into the lower single digits. Monday will have a flurry or two early. Otherwise we will have more clouds than sunshine. If you are headed out, you will want to be sure to bundle up as our high temperatures will not get out of the teens and the wind will help it to feel a good bit colder. Tuesday will turn out to be partly to mostly cloudy with high temperatures rebounding some into the middle 20s. Another system will move into the area Wednesday bringing us plenty of clouds with snow showers that may have a bit of a wintry mix. High temperatures will reach the lower and middle 30s. Thursday can have a flurry or snow shower early then clouds will continue to hang tough throughout the day. We will have some flurries to end out the work week with high temperatures near average Friday.
