We have been getting questions about the potential for snowfall this weekend. Right now we will only take an in depth look at Friday as there are still many details to work out with the snowfall on Saturday night into Sunday.
An Alberta clipper will move to the southeast across the state during the afternoon hours on Friday. We are expecting this front to be in northwest Iowa by noon on Friday. This front will continue to push to the southeast and will be through the state by early Saturday morning.
The heaviest of the snowfall will fall in northeast Iowa. This is where the potential for 2 to 3 inches of snow will be possible with isolated 4 inch totals. Other areas in the state will see a general 1 to 2 inches with isolated 3 inch totals. This band of snow will be weak in comparison to the next round that we expect to move through on Saturday night. There are still things to figure out with this next system, so for now, we will continue to keep an eye on this. Look for further updates on our Facebook page and right here at Iowachase.com.
