Friday’s First Warning Forecast: A warm end to the week

Then, Friday night into Saturday, blizzard conditions are expected to develop from central Nebraska through northwest Iowa, with 6 to 14 inches of snow possible, the weather service said. So, when exactly can we expect rain? Another wet storm system will bring moderate to heavy valley rain and mountain snow to the region on Sunday and Monday.

A break in any rain chances moves in late in the evening on Friday, before some scattered showers move in during the overnight hours.

Light rain and a few thunderstorms tracked through overnight in northeast Iowa.

The storms will continue through Saturday, which is when much of the locally heavy rainfall is anticipated.

Horatio Public Schools, AM-Texarkana and Foreman, AR elementary school announced they would close at 1 p.m. Foreman high school will close at around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday will be the coolest day of the week with highs in the low 60s.

The only good news about the snowstorm coming Friday night and Saturday in the Greater Mankato area is that it will be worse north of here. However, we will see a warm-up and more sunshine by the end of next week.

Our next concern will be area flooding as temperatures are expected into the 50s this weekend. Monitor the weather very closely this weekend.

Breezy with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 a.m. Temperatures Monday will be quite cold as highs struggle to reach the low 40’s!

Overcast conditions kicked into full swing into the middle of the day as we warmed all the way up toward the freezing mark by noon as a breezy south-southeasterly wind picked up. Snow showers will begin in that area likely around and after 2pm but really start collecting more as the evening rolls on. Locations south of Saranac Lake, Burlington, and Saint Johnsbury have the best chance of sleet and freezing rain. Carletta said this winter falls between the 60th and 80th percentile.

Warm windy surge continues…rain soon to knock on the door
