The Channel 6 Weather Authority has declared Thursday a Weather Authority Alert Day. A small storm system is moving through the metro and surrounding areas bringing accumulating snow along with it.
The heaviest snow continues to lift out, but additional snow showers may develop overnight and linger through 6 a.m. Friday. Snow showers could produce a dusting up to an inch and will be scattered in nature.
While snow totals will remain low across the metro, driving could become difficult at times with reduced visibility and some snow covered roads. Driving will be more difficult to the north of the metro. Areas around Norfolk east towards Tekamah to Carroll and points northward will see 2-5 inches by Friday morning. Those areas are under a winter weather advisory for the same time frame.
Authorities are warning drivers in western Iowa to slow down after responding to numerous reports of vehicles sliding off the road because of black ice lingering from last week's snowstorm.
The Iowa State Patrol says there are several reports of single-vehicle crashes and icy road conditions. Towing has been restricted along Interstate 29 from Missouri Valley to Sioux City.
