Tracking Accumulating Snow Monday

We haven’t had a lot of snow this winter, but we will be adding to our snowfall totals as we head into Monday.

A storm system will develop and bring southerly flow into Iowa and other Midwestern states, which will add a little more moisture to the atmosphere and produce moderate to heavy snow at times.  Right now, the timing looks to be late morning into early afternoon.  However, that may fluctuate a little as this is still 36 to 48 hours out.

One idea we are pretty confident on at this juncture, is that the evening commute is going to be very tricky with visibility issues and snow on the roads.

Let’s take a look at the probability of snowfall across eastern Iowa.  All of us have a pretty decent chance of receiving 1″ of snow.

The chances for 2″ or more of snow goes down just a bit, especially across our northern counties.

And the good chances get narrower for 4″ or more of snow.

Here is the Storm Track 7 Snowfall Forecast as of 9 PM Saturday evening.  This forecast will be updated as more data gets into the weather center ahead of the storm on Monday.
