For Sioux City, and the rest of central, southern, and eastern Siouxland, we've been put into a Winter Storm Watch from Friday night into Saturday evening as the National Weather Service waits to decide if these areas will reach blizzard criteria and whether or not we'll eventually also see a Blizzard Warning.

"There is a low risk of severe thunderstorms late this afternoon and tonight".

About 0.1 of an inch ice accumulation is possible and 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible through the day with 2-4 inches expected overnight.

Clinton firefighters this morning responded to a small fire in an unoccupied room at the Super 8 Motel in Clinton. A downed power line is believed to have started a house fire near Amherst on Thursday afternoon.

A tweet from the Sioux County (Iowa) Sheriff's Office on Friday said, "Please prepare now and be ready to halt travel later Friday & Saturday for a unsafe winter storm".

"There will be a chance for lingering thunderstorms across portions of the outlook area on Saturday".

The huge storm, packing enough energy to cause widespread disruption, isn't unprecedented for April, said Jake Beitlich, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

The Blizzard Warning is in effect from 1 a.m.to 7 p.m. on Saturday. The region could see snowfall from one to seven inches with hurricane force winds gusts up to 80 miles per hour.

Blizzard warnings cover most of Nebraska's midsection, from Kansas north to South Dakota. The strong winds and snow could create whiteout conditions and 3 to 6 inches of snow are possible with localized amounts up to 8 inches of snow.

Rain mixed with freezing rain is expected before 10 a.m. moving into rain mixed with snow before noon.
