Cold Weekend Ahead with Accumulating Snow Late Sunday

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect for our northwestern counties through Saturday morning, as wind chills drop from -15° to -25°.  Elsewhere, they will be -10° or colder.

Saturday will be mostly sunny once again, but temperatures remain cold with highs from 6 to 15 degrees.

Sunday start out dry, with brief sunshine early.  As the day goes on, cloud will become thicker, and temperatures will warm into the teens, close to 20°.  This is as an Alberta Clipper tracks into the Midwest, and brings a quick hit of snow late Sunday afternoon into early Monday morning.  This will be a very fluffy snow, so it will be easy to shovel, and it will add up quick.  Generally, we will see one to three inches across eastern Iowa.

Northeast Iowa has the best potential to see three inches.  There could be locally higher amounts as well.  As always, this is a couple days out so this forecast could change.  Stay with KWWL for updates.  In the meantime, here’s the probabilities of one and two inches of snow across eastern Iowa from the Weather Prediction Center.
