Wintry Mix and Gusty Winds
Iowa Storm Center.com
Date: 12/24/23 at 9:30am Central
Timing: Effective today through Tuesday….
Hazards: Snow, sleet and freezing rain.
Discussion: Rain will continue to work into western Iowa this morning and continue to move east into central and eastern Iowa later today. The second part of the storm system will then take shape during the pre-dawn hours of Christmas day where a wintry mix and snow will develop across west and northwest Iowa with rain continuing across central and eastern Iowa. As the surface low moves back to the west, wintry mix will transition back to rain before temperatures crash later Monday night. Once Tuesday hits, scattered wrap around snow showers will be possible before the system slides off to the east. Snowfall accumulation will be highest into extreme western Iowa near the Nebraska and South Dakota borders where localized higher amounts of 1-4″ of snow will be possible with a trace-2″ elsewhere and gradually cutting off further east.
The transition zone will also have an area of ice accumulation, given temperatures aloft. The amount for such will be a glaze-0.25″ across portions of western Iowa. In addition to the precipitation, strong northwest winds will gust 30-40+ MPH on Christmas day across extreme west/northwest Iowa.
