Tuesday's Wintry Mix

 

Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Updated: 4:15 am

A fast moving storm will bring a wintry mix of weather to eastern Iowa throughout the morning. Precipitation starts as snow through the early morning and will mix with sleet, and freezing rain south of HWY 30. In the far south look for a  change over to light rain and drizzle. The worst of the mess ends before lunchtime south of I-80 and with snow ending in the north by early afternoon.

Due to the fast movement of the storm precipitation looks light and little ice accumulation is expected. Snow is expected to amount to 1-2", especially along and north of Hwy 20. A strong cold front follows the storm bringing a brisk northwest wind that sharply drops temperatures tonight with single-digits expected.

Temperatures only warm to the low teens tomorrow and will drop below zero Wednesday night into Thursday. Warmer temperatures with 30s and even 40s move into our forecast by the end of the week and remain in the area through much of next week.
