However, according to CBS 2 meteorologist Mary Kay Kleist, it is close enough to bring light snow on its way in Friday night, especially at. 20.00 to 01.00. Smaller amounts are expected in our area with healthy accumulations through Iowa.
The snow view requires about an inch, with two inches possible west of I-39. Few showers left Saturday morning, but no further accumulation is expected. At most a pollination near the lake.
As the storm digs into the southern states, cold air joins in and major ice problems are expected. The storm then moves along the east coast, and moisture from the Atlantic Ocean winds its way into the system as it heads northeast.
