Rain fell across the area yesterday but the second half of the event will happen later tonight into Friday so read on for the details…
Strong northwesterly winds with gusts 30-45 MPH are expected today with even stronger gusts on Friday. Now the second half of the system will bring snow later tonight through Friday and as I mentioned before reduction in visibility is likely while snow is falling. Snow accumulations will be on the order of a trace to 2″ with the higher end amounts found across northern Iowa. Main snow accumulation will be on grass and elevated surfaces. Strong winds will subside as the system passes to the east later Friday night. I am also keeping an eye on Saturday night into Sunday for additional snow chances due to a passing clipper system. We have several different solutions to pick from at this point but right now I am favoring the northeast part of the state to see those snow chances.
Stay tuned to official forecasts from Iowa Storm Center.
