Snow, Wind, Cold

Snow will continue to push through the area and has the potential to be the biggest snowfall of the season.  Snow will arrive this evening, but the heaviest will be overnight into tomorrow morning.  Snowfall amounts will fall in the 4-8″ range with heavier amounts in north Iowa and lighter in southern Minnesota.  On the back side of this system the winds will pick up quite dramatically so even after the snow ends, blowing snow will be an issue as colder air moves in.  Highs will struggle to hit the double digits for some on Monday.

Another round of light snow is likely on Tuesday with a bit warmer temperatures, climbing to the low 20s.  But the cold air isn’t done yet, we’ll fall back to the teens on Wednesday and Thursday.  And it will be quite the roller coaster ride of temperatures after plenty of ups and downs, we jump back to the low to mid 20s on Friday and Saturday with another chance of snow for the area on Saturday.
