Nicer Friday but rain and snow for the holiday weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

**Winter Storm Watch for Holt County from 7 PM Saturday to 7 PM Sunday**

After a day of howling winds and scattered snow showers, skies cleared overnight and winds calmed as high pressure moved in.

That allowed temperatures to cool quite a bit overnight; in fact, a record low was set in Sioux City and tied in Norfolk!

The good news is that sunshine and a southerly breeze at 10 to 20 mph are helping to warm us up.

Highs will reach the low to mid 50s, definitely an improvement on yesterday!

Clouds will continue increasing overnight, helping to keep us from falling off too much with lows in the upper 30s.

Showers will develop as a system approaches our area Saturday with rain continuing into the nighttime.

It may begin to mix with snow Saturday night and will likely shift to all snow Sunday morning.

The snow continues for much of the day before wrapping up Sunday night.

Amounts have been trending up and 3 to 5 inches of accumulation are expected for most of the area with some isolated higher amounts possible.

The exception is southeastern Siouxland where most of the precipitation looks to fall as rain.

Winds will also be picking up through the day with gusts over 35 miles per hour possible.

It is another reason not to be traveling for the Easter holiday!

Chances for flurries or light snow showers will be with us again Monday and Tuesday with temperatures staying well below average through next week.
