The National Weather Service Office in Johnston is forecasting more winter weather for the weekend, bringing the possibility of up to a half-foot of snowfall.

Beginning this afternoon, light to moderate snowfall is supposed to begin in Central Iowa, continuing through the evening hours. Accumulations from the first round of snow are expected to be around an inch.

A second round of snow is expected to move into Central Iowa after noon Saturday with moderate accumulations during the day and heavier amounts in the evening and overnight hours. Additional accumulations could range from 3 to 5 inches.

A third round of snow is possible Sunday, although the Friday morning forecast put precipitation chances at less than 50 percent. An additional one inch of snow could fall with that system.
