If you enjoy a white landscape, it doesn’t look like our latest snow fall is going anywhere anytime soon. Temperatures will remain chilly during the work week. Our next chance for snow comes on Thursday when a clipper type system moves through Minnesota. This system is expected to spread light snow over much of Iowa. At this time it doesn’t appear that any significant accumulations will come from this storm.
But this isn’t the only threat for snow over the next week. Another, more threatening storm system is set to affect the central US next weekend. With 6 days before the storm develops and moves into the area, it’s next to impossible to nail down an exact track, but snowfall over Iowa appears almost likely once again. It’s unclear how much snow Iowa could see, but there is a potential for significant snowfall somewhere in the Upper Midwest. This storm will bear some serious watching as the holiday season means many will be on the road shopping and attending functions (including myself).
Behind this second storm system next weekend, more cold air should filter in from the northwest. That means parts of Iowa could experience their first taste of below zero conditions of the season. We’ll continue to monitor the latest model trends in the coming days and bring you updates when needed right here on our website.
