Winter Returns with a Bang

Across the Plains and Midwest the past several days, record breaking temperatures have been recorded. Unfortunately, the spring-like weather we've had won't last, especially across Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

Winter Weather headlines in place now across the center of the country with Blizzard Watches and Warnings, and Winter Storm Watches and Warnings ahead of a strong low pressure system. These warnings will be for heavy snow in Nebraska today through Friday, with some totals in Nebraska up to 18 inches!

For the Iowa area, the blizzard  warning is for extreme winter weather tonight into Friday. In northwest Iowa, up to a foot of snow is possible with heavy snow tonight through Friday evening. With winds in northwest Iowa gusting over 40 mph, visibility will be extremely low. Travel across the plains and portions of Iowa and Wisconsin will be hazardous to treacherous the next couple of days.

Here's a look at some of the forecast snow totals from the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, SD.
