More Snow?

iowa_tmpfHope you got outside and enjoyed the warm weather as temperatures will be falling over the next couple days. Today records were broken across western Iowa. Sioux City set the new daily record high of 65 degrees at 2:19 pm. The previous record was 59 in 1921. This morning they were waking up to a low of 13 degrees.

Tomorrow a short wave will once again move through the state, bringing a shot of snow for much of the state. Snow will begin across northwest Iowa around 3pm tomorrow afternoon and will slide to the southeast throughout the afternoon hours on Monday. Snow will continue48hourforecastsnowfall through the evening hours Monday night before tapering off by midnight Monday night. Snow totals will remain light, below an inch and a half. The heaviest band will fall from Sioux city, back to Des Moines, and on down to Ottumwa. Gusty winds will blow this light snow around causing reduced visibilities. Winter weather advisories may need to be issued if this is the case.

Behind this system, arctic air will move in bringing wind chills down to –20° to -30°F by Tuesday morning. Stay tuned to the Iowa Storm Chasing Network for the very latest.
