Siouxland School Closings and Delays

The changes that we've been talking about all week are finally occurring and it's looking much more like winter here in Siouxland to kick-off the weekend. The rain-snow will continue to march to its way through the viewing area from west to east this morning with moderate to heavy snow likely along the I-29 Corridor across northern and central counties. NW Siouxland is still going to receive the highest totals where potentially 7" could fall.  Thundersnow is a possibility early today which could also create locally higher amounts. The best bet for northern and central Siouxland including Sioux City now looks to be 2-4" and less as you press on to the SE where 1-2" or less is the most likely scenario. The snow will begin to wind down through the morning and early afternoon as the system begins to pull out of the region. We'll continue to deal with the winds all day though with gusts as high as 50 mph possible. This could create near white-out conditions during heavy snow bands. This looks to happen during the AM Commute which could make travel tricky so please be careful. Roads could drastically change as well due to heavy snow, so allow some extra time as you trek out onto the roads especially further to the NW. Conditions will start to clear tonight as high pressure builds in, but we're still looking blustery with lows dipping towards 20°. The sunshine returns tomorrow and lasts through the start of the workweek. Temperatures will be cold for our Saturday with highs only in the upper 30s. The winds will calm down though making it feel much more pleasant. Temperatures moderate back towards average through the middle of next week with our next chance of a wintry mix/rain Monday night into Tuesday. The good news is Thanksgiving is looking beautiful with highs near 50° under mostly sunny skies.
