A storm system will continue to work east with rain chances increasing for parts of the forecast area today through Saturday, so read on for the details…
While scattered rain showers exist across western Iowa this morning, the main part of the system will hit later today. A piece of energy will continue to eject into the plains today where rain chances will be on the rise across western Iowa later this afternoon. This activity should continue overnight into Saturday morning with the highest rain chances across the west and northwest part of the state. As temperatures cool later tonight, we will need to watch for rain to transition over to snow across portions of northwest Iowa into the pre-dawn hours of Saturday morning.
Rainfall amounts of 0.25-0.50″ look most probable across western Iowa with localized higher amounts of 0.50-1.00″ from southwest up through west/northwest Iowa. All activity should begin to taper off from west to east late Saturday morning through the afternoon as the system moves off to the east.
LONG RANGE: A clipper system will drop down out of Canada on Monday which will bring strong wind gusts to the state with any remaining snow showers that may materialize from the system.
