We will continue to see scattered rain showers work east today. By Sunday morning the main wave of snow will begin to work through the state with a deformation zone across northwest Iowa where 0.5-1.5″ per hour snowfall rates are expected. I would even leave the chance for broken branches and scattered power outages due to the heavy snow. During snowfall we will see a strong north/northeasterly wind with gusts 30-50 MPH leading to greatly reduced visibility. Snow will end across western Iowa by later Sunday night and ending across eastern Iowa by early Monday morning.
