Scattered showers and windy conditions will impact areas on Thursday. Also watching for snow chances over the weekend so read on for the details and what zones are affected…
A cold front will be moving in on Thursday…this will bring some hit and miss showers to the state. A few scattered showers are possible across NW Iowa by 5-6 AM tomorrow morning and this will progressively slide east ahead of the front during the day Thursday. The primary rainfall amounts will exist across north central to northeast Iowa where a 0.10″+ of rain will be possible. The Wind Advisory has been issued and goes into effect on Thursday, details below.
Wind Advisory Discussion: A cold front will slide through the state on Thursday. Strong winds behind the front will mix down to the surface. This will bring wind gusts of 30-45 MPH to much of Iowa Thursday afternoon. Gusty winds will subside by later Thursday night.
We are continuing to watch Saturday’s snow chances but not much to go off of at the moment. If we were to draw a line from Sioux City to Des Moines and then over to Davenport, everything south and west of there is where we feel the best bet is at for any snow on Saturday. This will continue to evolve in the coming days but keep in mind that temperatures will be around or above freezing through the entire event.
Stay tuned to official forecasts from Iowa Storm Center for further updates.
