SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The wind continued to blow Friday and that continued to cause problems across the KTIV viewing area.

Northeastern Siouxland has had the worst of the travel conditions Friday as the few inches of snow that fell up that way on Wednesday was being blown around by 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts causing drifted roads and whiteout conditions.

These are the conditions that we expect to get better as the day goes along on Saturday.

The wind will slowly come down throughout the day on Saturday and we’ll see mostly sunny skies with highs in the single digits above zero.

Saturday night will be another frigid night with lows a bit colder than -10 degrees under mostly clear skies and winds out of the northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

Skies will be clouding back up on Christmas Day and by the afternoon we’ll see some light snow showers become possible again.

We could even see some light snowfall accumulation into Sunday night with northeastern Siouxland likely seeing the most snow with an inch or two of accumulation possible with highs on Sunday a bit warmer into the upper teens.

While Monday will still be chilly, warmer conditions will be moving in throughout the week.

I’ll continue to track the blizzard conditions and bitterly cold temperatures and have the very latest for you tonight on News 4 at 5, 6, and 10.
