The lack of any significant winter weather so far this season is about to change, with some storms moving into the local area later today (FRI) and this weekend. Meteorologist Steve Woolenhouse says that 1 to 2 inches, and possibly up to 3, is possible tonight, with storms redeveloping tomorrow and tomorrow night, and into Sunday. He says that the wind will increase this weekend as well, leading to significant blowing and drifting in many areas. A Winter Weather Advisory and Winter Storm Watch goes into effect this afternoon for the majority of the region. Keep it tuned to KNUJ for updates on the approaching winter weather.
