SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - As of 8 am Saturday, our latest winter storm continues to be on track since my Friday forecast.

Snow did move into Siouxland early Friday night and the snow began in Sioux City around midnight.

The snow became moderate to heavy during the overnight hours and we woke up to a new coating of snow and temperatures in the teens.

At my home on the north side of Sioux City, 3.5″ had fallen by 7:40 am.

Snow chances will continue throughout the day on Saturday although the intensity of the snow should be diminishing as we get later into the day especially.

High temperatures will be in the teens and that will be in the morning with falling afternoon temperatures.

The wind will be out of the northeast in the morning switching to more of a northerly direction by the afternoon and winds could gust up to 30 miles per hour meaning some blowing and drifting of snow will be possible.

Snow of 4 to 8 inches will fall in the counties where there is a Winter Storm Warning which does include Sioux City.

There’s even an area along the southeast South Dakota and northeast Nebraska border that could see over 8 inches of snow.

Southern Siouxland will see the least out of this system with 2 to 4 inches in a line from Norfolk, NE to Carroll, IA.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for those locations seeing more of the 2 to 4 inch amounts.

The snow should come to a complete end by early Saturday night although the wind will be a little slower to settle down although calmer conditions will arrive by Sunday morning.

It turns bitterly cold Saturday night with lows heading into the single digits below zero and wind chills could get colder than -20 degrees.

We’ll continue to see plenty of clouds Sunday with some flurries possible and highs will stay very cold in the single digits.

Will we see any warmer weather return next week?

We’ll have the latest tonight on News 4.
