LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The winter storm that has plagued the midwest is moving its way north through Iowa and into Southern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.
Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for Northeastern Iowa Thursday night through Friday with a winter weather advisory for the rest of the area according to WXOW Chief Meteorologist Dan Breeden.
The advisory doesn't mean we'll escape the snow in the La Crosse area.
Snowfall will be the heaviest in Northeast Iowa-as much as eight inches-to four inches in north central Wisconsin. 
Much of the snow will come overnight according to Breeden, which means snowy roads for the morning commute Friday.
The forecast calls for possibly another inch or two with flurries through the day on Friday.
Saturday and Sunday will give us a break from the snow before another system moves in that may bring another heavy batch of snow.
LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A winter storm, already dumping plenty of snow on the central part of the midwest, is headed towards Minnesota and Wisconsin overnight.
WXOW Daybreak Meteorologist Alex Kirchner says that it will be quiet much of Thursday in advance of the storm.
Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are set to go into effect at 6pm. The snow is set to arrive during the late evening hours and into the overnight. During that period, Kirchner says two to five inches are expected to fall, with heavy amounts at times.
The heaviest of the snowfall will be in Iowa and extreme southern Minnesota.
As Friday progresses, the storm will weaken, although flurries dropping another inch or two of snow are possible.
Once the weekend comes, Saturday and most of Sunday are forecast to be dry according to Kirchner.
As of Thursday afternoon, another storm is predicted to drop more snow and possibly some rain Sunday evening into Monday.
