Big Storm Bad Timing

We are still forecasting a huge storm that will impact Iowa Tuesday night through Christmas Day.

The snow we getting today in northern Iowa is not part of the bigger system that will bring freezing rain, ice and snow over the Christmas holiday.

Tuesday night there will be areas of freezing rain late. Then Wednesday the storm will have freezing rain and light snow in the morning. That will change back to freezing rain and all rain Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday night and Thursday the storm will draw in the cold air from the north and we will have heavy snow with high wind through Christmas Eve Day and Christmas morning.

This storm will leave ice on the surface and then 6" to 8" of snow is expected. This will cause major travel problems.

Travel on Tuesday if you can...and plan on much better conditions Saturday and Sunday.

I'll be updating this storm often...check back and stay tuned.
