DES MOINES, Iowa - Snow made for a difficult Thanksgiving drive leading up to the holiday, and it's expected to make the drive home difficult, too.
Interstate 80 in Western Nebraska was closed Saturday and through the night because of heavy snow. The National Weather Service reports the heaviest snow hit Wyoming into South Dakota, with a foot or more of snow in many areas. Minneapolis and much of Minnesota got several inches of additional snow the day after Thanksgiving, with dozens of spin outs and crashes reported on I-90, I-35, and I-94 through the state.
Through all of this the corridor from Omaha through Des Moines and Ames, east through Cedar Rapids, and into Davenport has had only minor impacts, and it looks like it will stay that way Sunday, too.
December 1 will see small amounts of new snow across the region, and very windy conditions.
The highest snow totals will be from West Central Iowa into Northern Iowa, including the I-35 corridor north of Ames, and the I-80 corridor in Western Iowa from around Atlantic.
The strongest winds will be in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa, with up to 50 mile an hour gusts Sunday, including the Omaha .
