UPDATE on the Winter Storm Potential on Monday afternoon into Tuesday.
A winter storm continues to look likely across Iowa Monday into Tuesday. The precipitation looks to begin as a wintry mix during the daytime hours Monday before changing over to snow in the afternoon and evening hours. Expect this system to impact the evening commute Monday. The better chances of higher snow accumulations are expected to be over the northeastern portion of the state. The snow is anticipated to continue into Tuesday morning when the blustery northwesterly winds develop. These winds are likely to cause blowing and drifting snow throughout the day Tuesday into Tuesday evening with reduced visibilities likely from the snow and blowing snow. Travel may be impacted Tuesday as well with snow in the morning and blowing snow in the afternoon. There is still some uncertainty with this system but headlines may be needed in coming forecasts.
