A view of the snow from above

Northern Iowa has seen accumulating snow this week and you can see it clearly today with no clouds on a satellite image. The map below shows where and how much snow fell during the previous 24 hours as of Wednesday morning.

Another round of snow fell Wednesday afternoon and evening. The amounts were a little lower but did also make it a little farther south.

The sky was clear Thursday morning across much of the Midwest allowing us a good look at where the snow was on the ground. Click on the image below and it will enlarge to get a closer look at some areas that had snow and others that did not.The white on the map below is the snow on the ground.

Areas that have snow will have a very cold start to Friday morning as temperatures drop into the single digits above zero. A few might even drop below zero like they did Thursday morning.

The amount of snow that fell Wednesday in Waterloo was a daily snow record. The previous record was back in 1896.
