Iowa Update: Latest on snow and ice in southeast Iowa today

88

A low pressure system will lift north and east of the southern plains today bringing snow and ice accumulations to the southeast part of the state. Snow should continue to spread north this morning with an area of freezing rain to continue near the Burlington area. The storm system will wrap up with snow exiting the state 9-10 PM this evening. Also want to make a quick note as I mentioned yesterday…we are still expecting to see widespread fog risks tonight through Saturday morning and a second round Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Snow accumulations will be on the order of a trace-2″ on the outer edge of the system and then we will have an area of 2-6″ of snow in the center where we have more moisture to work with.

Ice accumulations will be a glaze-0.20″ across extreme southeast Iowa. The higher end ice amounts will be located across places like Burlington and Fort Madison toward the border of Missouri and Illinois.
