Weekend weather: Forecasters say snow could fall on valley floor

Easter 2018 weather forecast

The snow started just after 9 a.m. and continued for much of the day.

A late season snowstorm will impact parts of eastern Iowa and northwestern IL tonight into Saturday.

High pressure was centered in the central Gulf Friday afternoon, keeping the weather nice across our area.

If daytime temperatures approach expected levels, roads and streets may not get cold enough to become slick, Ruckman said. High near 46. South southeast wind 6 to 10 miles per hour.

"The amount of accumulation during that time can vary", Silverman said, "but throughout both of those counties people could see anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow". There can be some accumulation of snow from these snow showers. It will be breezy with winds out of the northeast at 5 to 15 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent.

"As of 5pm, most communities around central IN have picked up at least 3-5" with some areas having picked up over 7-8" of snowfall with a bit more to go.

Moving into next week, a slow moving storm system will likely be producing showers and storms across Texas into the Lower Plains States, and will eventually bring higher rain chances to the area by mid-late next week. Calm wind becoming south southwest 5 to 7 miles per hour in the afternoon. The sky will be partly cloudy with the high getting into the upper 70s.

Saturday: A slight chance of rain and snow showers before noon, then rain showers.

Sunday will be cloudy and slightly warmer with a 40% chance of rain. High near 45. South southeast wind 7 to 9 miles per hour. The precipitation will initially begin as a mix of rain and snow, but will quickly transition to all snow by late this evening. Winds will be light though so it won't feel too bad. We don't need this rain, and some localized flooding and ponding of water on roadways will be possible.
