“We’ll have to pay attention to the track and the strength as it moves across the Plains on Friday,” Elwell said. “That will make a big difference if we need to change the snowfall forecast.”

Elwell said we may not be done with the snow Sunday, as another system is forecast to be a threat to the region by Tuesday of next week.
