There’s still more than a month of fall left but winter weather is moving into Iowa today. It’s snowing in parts of northwest and north-central Iowa and meteorologist Craig Cogil, at the National Weather Service, says the snow will continue well into the afternoon.
A Winter Weather Advisory is posted for Dickinson, Emmett, Kossuth and Winnebago counties. A second snowstorm is forecast to move into Iowa from the south late tonight and move across central Iowa, heading east.
Even though winter doesn’t start until December 21st, Cogil says this second round of snowfall is relatively on target, roughly ten days early.
Snow that accumulates will likely be sticking around for several days as he says air temperatures are expected to stay quite cold, and there may not be a warming trend at least until next week.
