Snow shovels are again scraping across sidewalks and driveways all over Iowa. Much of the state got at least flurries overnight and this morning while some areas are expecting more than a half-a-foot of new flakes. Jeff Johnson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, says the snow is still coming down in some areas.
Johnson says the brunt of the snowfall is over in north-central Iowa but it’s still snowing in northeast Iowa.
Storm totals should range from five-to-eight inches. On the plus side, he says our furnaces shouldn’t have to be working as hard as they did a few weeks ago to keep our homes habitable. The winds will shift after this storm system gets past Iowa, bringing light snowshowers with little accumulation and lots of cold air — but not the five-degree levels of cold we had earlier this month. He says high temps should remain in the 20s and 30s with lows in the teens.
