The heaviest of band of snow has been across southern Minnesota and crossing the state line into Iowa this evening. Snow reports have ranged from 1-4″…. the heaviest in Minnesota. The most unstable part of the atmosphere is across southern MN where the snow is falling at 1″ per hour. The forecast is for it to come south a bit overnight. The snow extends back into South Dakota.
The southern edge of the heavier snow will come close again to Waterloo and Dubuque (along Highway 20). There is a lot of uncertainty about how much snow makes it as far south as roughly Highway 20. I will keep the narrow band of 1-3″ on the southern edge of heavier band circled above. Here is the latest WSI RPM snow forecast.
Here is the graphic I will show during the 10 pm news (see below). There is going to be such a sharp cutoff. I could possibly narrow the 1-3″ snow band a bit more. I am going to leave it this way for the show.
We will see how this plays out. I will post snow totals here on the blog tomorrow morning.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of snow in the morning. High: 23-26. Wind: E/NE 10-15 mph.
Wednesday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 5-12. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy. High: upper 20s.
Sunday: Partly cloudy. High: low 30.
Monday: Partly cloudy. High: upper 30s.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High: mid 30s.
Snow is likely tonight and will move into eastern Iowa this evening. Snow continues tonight then tapers off early Wednesday morning. A light wind reduces the chances of blowing snow.
High temperatures will be near 30 degrees Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds. There is a slight chance of rain/snow Friday as a cold front pushes through the state. Saturday through Tuesday will be dry with highs reaching the 30s.
Here is how much snow is on the ground this mooring .
