❄Significant Winter Storm Wednesday Into Thursday❄

…Significant Winter Storm with Two Rounds of Precipitation…

A large winter storm with prolonged wintry precipitation will occur over the region Tuesday through Thursday. The first round will be mainly snow over far northern Iowa with light accumulations possible. Otherwise with this first round, much of Iowa will not see any wintry precipitation.

The second round of wintry precipitation Wednesday into Thursday will be more widespread and be the more impactful portion of this winter storm for the state of Iowa. That is what this Winter Storm Watch covers and additional headlines and areas covered are certainly possible in the coming days. While snow will remain the main precipitation type over northern Iowa, a wintry mix with icing potential is possible mainly between Highway 30 and 3, but may extend as far south as I-80. Farther south for areas south of I-80, mainly rain is expected that may end as a bit of light snow with little if any accumulation. Wednesday into Thursday will also feature strong and gusty winds, which will cause areas of blowing snow over northern Iowa. Needless to say, travel impacts are increasingly likely Wednesday into Thursday over northern into parts of central Iowa and certainly for areas of South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as well.

Accumulating light snow will develop over northern Iowa through the day Tuesday and continue into Tuesday night. Snowfall will range up to near 2 inches along the Minnesota border by sunrise Wednesday, with much of Iowa south of Highway 3 not seeing any precipitation during this time. A few minor travel impacts are possible in the far north.

After the far northern Iowa light snow on Tuesday and Tuesday night, winter precipitation will become more widespread from Wednesday into Thursday. While snow will remain the main precipitation type over northern Iowa, a wintry mix with icing potential is possible from around Highway 3 down toward Interstate 80. For areas south of I-80 mainly rain is expected but may end as a bit of light snow with little to no accumulation. Wednesday into Thursday will also feature strong and gusty winds, which will cause areas of blowing snow over northern Iowa. Travel impacts are increasingly likely Wednesday into Thursday over northern into parts of central Iowa as well as much of the neighboring states.
