If you're traveling in Nebraska or Iowa Friday, expect extreme cold, snow and freezing drizzle outside of the metro.

The National Weather Service says between 2 and 4 inches of snow is expected to fall along northern Iowa. An additional 1 to 2 inches is expected around Des Moines after a similar amount fell overnight. Weather officials expect areas of freezing drizzle mainly south of Interstate 80.

Temperatures are expected to climb, but arctic air will hit the region next week. Wind chills could reach 20 below zero.

Winds of up to 15 mph are expected Friday across western and north central Nebraska. The combination could produce near 20 below zero temperatures across the western Sandhills and parts of the Platte Valley.
