TRACKING: Rain, Snow and Wind Monday

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY  is in effect Monday into Tuesday morning for northeast Iowa.


Monday will be interesting.  All of eastern Iowa will have rain during the morning hours, so plan on a wet commute.  There may be a period of sleet and freezing rain mixing with the snow across northeast Iowa during the morning hours.

It will be windy with SE winds 15-30 mph, gusting 40+ mph at times.  Highest will be in the upper 30s north, to upper 40s south.

As we head into the afternoon hours, rain will begin to mix with, then transition into snow north of Highway 20.

Some of the snow could be heavy at times.  Snowfall amounts will be 3-6″, with locally higher amounts.

Near the Highway 20 corridor, 1-3″ of snow is possible Monday afternoon and evening.

Rain may mix with snow as far south as Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.  Any accumulation would be a trace to less than an inch.

We will have a dry period Monday evening, before the low pressure system tracks through eastern Iowa, and the backside brings wrap around snow showers after midnight, and into Tuesday.  An additional inch of snow is possible with that round.
