Upper Midwest Preparing for Wintry Blast, Up to Foot of Snow

Iowans are bracing for another wintry blast late Thursday into the weekend, with parts of the state already under a winter storm warning.

The National Weather Service has winter storm warnings in effect for the northern swath of IL from 6 p.m. Thursday through Friday evening.

Snow accumulation totals are expected from 1 to 3 inches in Nebraska, up to 8 inches in Iowa, and up to a foot in Illinois, Indiana and MI.

The agency issued a winter storm watch for DeKalb, Kosciusko and Noble counties, saying five to nine inches of snow are possible in DeKalb and Noble between late tonight and Friday evening, and six to nine inches are expected north of USA 30 in Kosciusko.

The New York Democrat cited a letter he sent to Ryan past year with 44 Senate Democrats saying they would not support a cromnibus. Nondefense programs would receive about $60 billion over current levels. "Take an action that has bipartisan support".

Expect overcast skies and a high in the mid-20s today. Periods of light to moderate snow will also be likely this morning, especially between Sioux Falls and Sioux City. The main snow axis will lay across most of the area overnight into Friday morning before tapering by the evening commute.

Generally, northern counties can expect 3-6 inches of fresh snow by the end of the day Friday.

A weather-service warning for Williams County, Ohio, said seven to 11 inches of snow were expected there.
