I’m told the meteorological start of Spring is March 1st, and not late March like what the Calendar says. But as you can see by the graphic to the left, that all just flys out the window.
Spring is here when mother nature WANTS it to be here. This weekend the upper midwest faces a nasty blizzard. Areas in red are in a blizzard warning as of Saturday Morning, the pink under a Winter Storm Warning and the blue in a Winter Storm Watch.
The real question now is where will the low actually track, any shift north or south will greatly impact precip, wind and most importantly, precip TYPE here in eastern Iowa. Regardless, Sunday is not expected to be a great travel day across the area. For up to date road conditions, check out the links page.
