High temperatures reached into the upper 50s on Tuesday, but it’s well below freezing across much of Iowa this morning, with most areas in the 20s. Meteorologist Jim Lee, with the National Weather Service office in Johnston, says parts of northern Iowa are seeing snow fly today with a couple inches of accumulation.
Many areas got an inch or less, but there are reports of as much as four-and-a-half inches of snow near Kanawha. The snowfall is reaching from Hancock County into Grundy and Franklin counties. Lee says the snowflakes will likely last much of the day for that region.
While the front is weakening, more snow could keep falling off-and-on through the day and into tonight. Lee said there is the potential for more white stuff in parts of Iowa on Sunday. It won’t be a major snow event, he says, but it could bring a few more inches.
