DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Light snow is expected to hit most of Iowa and parts of Nebraska as both states recover from a powerful storm last week. The National Weather Service says up to 3 inches of snow is possible in Iowa between Thursday night and Friday morning. The snow is expected especially along and north of Interstate 80. Between 2 and 4 inches of snow could hit northeast Nebraska between Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. The snow is expected mainly along and north of Highway 30. Less than an inch of snow is expected south of Lincoln and Plattsmouth. Temperatures are expected to be in the 20s in both states on Thursday. A powerful snow storm last week dumped several inches of snow across parts of Iowa and Nebraska.
