UPDATE: What We Know Regarding Possible Winter Storm

Winter returns this weekend into early next week as a storm moves over the region.n There still remains a bit of uncertainty regarding the track of the low. Depending on where the track of the low goes, will determine who will see snow, and who will see rain.

As of Thursday evening, this is what we know at this time. The storm will begin to impact Iowa Saturday night and Sunday morning with drizzle or light freezing drizzle developing before warmer air arrives changing all the precipitation over to rain on Sunday. As low pressure moves through the region, colder air will wrap into the state with the rain changing to snow Sunday night into Monday. At this time, the best chance for accumulating snowfall will be over northwest into north central Iowa.

Winds will also be quite strong as they increase from the northwest, with wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph common across the state. This will cause significantly reduced visibilities, so travel will be rather tricky.

The forecast will continue to change over the coming days, so continue to monitor the weather forecast for updates.
