Wasn’t today just a beautiful day?! The 70s made it all the way into central Iowa. The northeast has remained cooler due to the snow pack, but a lot of it was melting off today! Hopefully you got outdoors today as Tuesday will be cooler and there will be snow. Yes you heard us right, snow.
A low pressure system will move across Kansas and Missouri, and this will bring a chance of rain and snow to the state. Snow will begin across the northwest portion of the state after 11am and this line of precipitation will slide off to the southeast. North of highway 30, all precipitation will fall as snow.
Snow will the into central Iowa after 6pm, however, precipitation south of highway 30 will start off as rain and will quickly transition to snow. Because of this, lesser snowfall totals are expected south of highway 30. The greatest snowfall totals will be north of highway 30 and this is where 1 to 2 inches will be likely. Anywhere south of highway 30, totals will be less than an inch, due to rain initially. This snow event will be short lived as it will be out of the state by early Wednesday. Wednesday’s highs will be in the lower to upper 30s across the state. This cool down will also be short lived as temperatures will rebound on Thursday.
