Another Winter storm possible in Iowa early next week

News, Weather

February 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the National Weather Service in Des Moines say it appears that central Iowa will not get a break in the action. We will still see light snow or flurries over mainly Eastern Iowa today from the Tuesday system. After a brief break over the weekend another storm system will be taking shape and will affect the upper Midwest and Northern plains beginning Sunday night and ending early Tuesday. This system will have the potential to produce moderate to even locally heavy snowfall and it passes Iowa but it is too early to determine exactly where the heaviest snow will fall.
