We have a cold night ahead under a mostly clear sky. New snow and no wind will allow temperatures to drop from 10 below zero to 5 above zero by Tuesday morning.
We start Tuesday with lots of sunshine. Clouds increase during the afternoon ahead of our next storm. A WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect for central and western Iowa Tuesday night into Wednesday. This area has the best chance of 6″+.
High temperatures warm into the low 20s, ten degrees below normal. Snow begins between 10 pm Tuesday and 2 AM Wednesday. Snow continues through the night and into Wednesday morning.
It tapers off in the afternoon with snow totals of 4-6”. This will be a wet snow and hard to shovel. Blowing snow is not much of a concern with a 5-15 mph wind.
Thursday and Friday are dry with another storm possible this weekend. There is a small chance of a rain/snow mix Saturday. There is a better chance of rain/snow Sunday with a gusty northwest wind.
