Wet start to Winter

Posted: Updated:

Wet weather will be moving through eastern Iowa over the next few days.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Schnackenberg writes:

We have been tracking a storm since last week, and it is forecast to move across Iowa early this week. The storm is over Montana this evening. The forecast track takes it over eastern Iowa Tuesday morning. We are on the warm side of it, so rain will be the main precipitation type Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight will be windy with light rain/drizzle as temperatures stay above freezing (mid 30s). Rain and a gusty southeast wind continue Monday as afternoon temperatures get close to 40 degrees. Rain chances continue Monday night until late when a few snow showers are possible. A few light snow showers are possible Tuesday morning before temperatures warm up for a few rain showers in the afternoon. A light snow shower or flurries are possible Wednesday as the wind increases from the northwest. IF any snow accumulates through Wednesday evening it would be less than 1”. The amount of moisture possible for eastern Iowa is about 0.30? (I have been saying this since Friday). A lot of this will fall as rain and leave very little for snow.

The end result will be little to no snow accumulation through Wednesday evening.
