WATERLOO (KWWL) - Winter officially began at 11:47 AM Monday…and it won't take the young winter season long to produce a major storm. Meteorologist Jeff Kennedy says the latest computer models are beginning to agree that this next big cyclone will come farther North, and may move right over Iowa by Friday. That will bring some warmer temperatures into the mix, and may yield an icy mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain.
Since this is expected to be a long, drawn-out storm, the potential is there for lots of moisture, and flooding may become a concern before the end of the storm. If the temperature is just a bit colder, then we may be dealing with more ice and freezing precipitation. Still no watches, warnings or advisories.
