We’re four weeks into spring, but parts of Iowa will see snowflakes fly very soon. A Winter Weather Advisory is posted for several counties in northwest Iowa, which may get up to four inches of snow by Thursday night.
Meteorologist Frank Boksa, at the National Weather Service, says a storm front is moving across Iowa. The weather system is bringing in a lot of warm, moist, unstable air which is producing thunderstorms across southern Iowa, Boksa says.
There is the chance for hail and heavy rain and a Flash Flood Watch is posted for much of southern and eastern Iowa. Colder air should move in later today and northwest Iowa will see the rain change to snow. A wider section of the state may see sleet and snow late Thursday and into Friday.
