  • Southeast Nebraska to get brunt of storm

Thursday, rain and freezing rain is likely, possibly mixed with snow before 11 a.m., then snow is likely, possibly mixed with freezing rain between 11 a.m. and noon.

Friday Night Mostly cloudy, with a low around 8. The strongest winds will be found from west central to south central Minnesota where winds could gust to 40 miles per hour.

That could mean lows in record-cold territory where snow covers the ground - and as cold if not a degree or two colder than some of the lowest temps we've seen so far this season even without snow on the ground. Widespread snow will fall tonight on top of the ice.

A south wind will be 9 to 16 miles per hour, gusting to as high as 24 miles per hour.

The change over to sleet, snow and freezing rain begins around Muscle Shoals and the northwest corner of the state by midmorning Friday; the transition line will work steadily eastward during the day.


Another round of snow and ice will develop Friday in the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes, spreading into the interior Northeast Saturday. The combination of accumulating snowfall and the strong winds may produce blizzard conditions.

Today - Rain likely, mainly after 1 p.m.

This much snow is expected to make travel extremely hard, particularly for the Thursday evening commute, with slick roads and limited visibility. Cold wind chills as low as 20 below zero will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

The winter weather really ramps up Thursday into Friday, the Weather Service said.

The National Weather Service has released information about a winter storm that will soon hit southeast Missouri and southern IL. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts. More sleet than snow.
