November Snow?

snowWe will be keeping our eye on a system over the next 24 hours as it could bring heavy rains to the state, and potentially accumulating snow to the northwest corner of the state. A surface low pressure will develop across the western high plains Tuesday, with a warm front extending to the northeast through central Iowa by midday Tuesday. Precipitation will overspread the entire state Tuesday morning before tapering off from west to east during the day Wednesday. Our forecast models are starting to pick up on a surge of colder air on the backside of this system, with temperatures now expected to fall through Tuesday afternoon. rainThis could bring the potential for rain to transition over to snow in the far northwest corner of the state. Because of this, there is the possibility for accumulating snow Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. At this time it will need to be monitored, however, light accumulations may be possible with the possibility of some moderate accumulations. Much of the state could receive another widespread inch or more of rainfall with this system through Wednesday. We will continue to track this system and will bring the very latest on our Facebook page and right here at
