Blizzard Warning Issued for Nance, Polk, Merrick Counties

For Sioux City, and the rest of central, southern, and eastern Siouxland, we've been put into a Winter Storm Watch from Friday night into Saturday evening as the National Weather Service waits to decide if these areas will reach blizzard criteria and whether or not we'll eventually also see a Blizzard Warning.

Those to the south can expect severe thunderstorms in the forecast as well as "the potential for a few tornadoes".

Blizzard conditions are expected as snow accumulation of six to 10 inches is likely with localized amounts of up to a foot of snow is possible.

"Strong northeasterly gradient winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour, will occur across much of the area from late tonight into Saturday".

"Accumulating snow is possible Saturday night into Sunday".

tThe heaviest of snow looks to fall in northwest Siouxland where a lot of areas will see from 8-12 inches.

Here's the afternoon forecast from the National Weather Service.

There is a 40 percent chance of snow before 1 p.m. Sunday with a high near 34 degrees. And to the west, in the panhandle, snow accumulation was already being reported, Gomez said, with 3 inches recorded in Gordon. Damage to trees and power lines is possible. Golf ball-sized hail fell Friday morning in parts of southwestern Wisconsin, covering the ground like snow in Richland Center and Gays Mills.

In South Dakota, where a blizzard warning covered much of the state, authorities issued no-travel advisories for many highways and closed much of Interstate 90 in the western half of the state.
