Once again, northern parts of Iowa are under a Winter Weather Advisory. This advisory runs from noon Monday and will stay in effect through Tuesday morning. Snowfall totals of 3 to 5 inches are possible in the area under this advisory, with locally higher amounts possible.
The threat of snow is coming with the latest storm system following the conveyor belt of disturbances that have moved through the Upper Midwest in recent weeks, not only keeping the snow falling but keeping the cold air firmly in place… for now.
One bit a good news, some milder temperatures are expected for this week. But that doesn’t mean a break from the active pattern. Another storm system will push into the area late Thursday and into Friday (Christmas Eve). This storm will need to be monitored as it could produce some precipitation that doesn’t fall in the form of snow in parts of Iowa.
In the meantime, we’ll monitor for any changes in our latest snow maker, but at this time the models appear to have a good handle on things. Another decent snowfall for northern Iowa with the heaviest totals along the border with Minnesota. The wintry broken weather continues.
