Expect two to four inches of powdery snow today: National Weather Service

Arctic air stays in place all next week, with subzero wind chills every morning.

The heaviest band of snow as of Thursday evening is forecasted to go right through the heart of the Local 4 and Fox 18 area as it moves through the metro area and adjacent to the 1-80 corridor.

The commission also clarified that it did not schedule a press conference for Wednesday as reported in the media. The two were vying to replace Africa's first female president, Nobel Peace Prize victor Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Ford and Iroquois counties from 12 p.m. Friday until 12 a.m. Saturday. Snow showers this evening and tonight look to be lighter, but still capable of depositing a few inches in localized spots near the shoreline. Highways will be snow-covered, slippery and traffic will be slowed considerably during the afternoon/evening commute. The heavier amounts will likely be focused on the USA 30 and Interstate 80 corridors, where snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour will lead to rapid accumulation and very poor visibility for the evening commute. Saturday will see another high in the mid-20s.

Above you can see a stream of subtropical moisture is following the jet stream right into the Pacific NW and rolling over into Montana. Skies will remain mostly cloudy the rest of the overnight hours.
