hamilton boulevard in sioux city. tommie, what's it like out there? well sarah, today is predicted to be the biggest snowfall of the year for the tri-state area and so far it's living up to the hype. sioux city is a white out right now with less than half a mile visibility. and, the icy sidewalks and streets are making it more difficululfor travel. but, it's predicted to get worse tonight wiwh 8 inches coming down in the majority of siouxland. so if you do need toeave the house, we're advising you do that now to beat the evening snowfall. i was out earlier this morning and crews are out clearing the streets and spreading sand, but it is slow going out there. and since this could be a long, drawn n t snowfall, it may be harder for road crews to keep up. winds will pick up later today and that means blowing snow so the best thing to do today is to stay inside and keep warm. in sioux city...tommie
