WATERLOO — Another round of up to 6 inches of snow is forecast for Friday into Saturday for much of Northeast Iowa, according to the latest forecast.
The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook but no watches or warnings yet for Black Hawk, Bremer, Butler, Franklin, Grundy, Hardin, Marshall and Tama counties in Northeast Iowa among a larger, statewide swath of counties expected to be impacted by the winter storm.
A “light dusting” of snow was possible beginning Wednesday evening into Thursday, which may create slick roads, according to the NWS.
Widespread, moderate accumulating and blowing snow is then forecast to begin Friday into early Saturday.
A stretch from Waterloo to Decorah is expected to get a total of 4 to 6 inches of snow between Friday and Saturday, according to the Wednesday forecast.
Bitterly cold temperatures are expected Sunday morning through Monday morning, with Waterloo forecast for minus 12 degree wind chills and Decorah at minus 11, according to the NWS. Estherville, in far northwestern Iowa, is forecast for minus 25 degrees.
Another chance of snow is possible Monday into Tuesday, the NWS said.
