Well if you live across western Iowa and looked out the window Friday morning, you might have saw accumulating snow. What month are we in again? For late April, this weather is downright cold, and unusual. More rain is expected this weekend, and even the potential for more snow across the Midwest, including Iowa.
A potent storm system headed our way for the second half of the weekend. Widespread rain will move into the area Saturday night, and intensify on Sunday. By Sunday night, temperatures may cool sufficiently to produce a band of snow across the region.
Accumulations are still uncertain, but light to even moderate accumulations could be possible. The greatest snowfall accumulations will stay to the northwest of Iowa, but minor snowfall accumulations appear possible across northwest Iowa. Any snowfall accumulations would be under an inch.
The bigger story across Iowa will be the heavy rain expected. Rainfall totals by Monday morning should be well over an inch, with some areas in the state over two inches of rainfall.
