Another clipper is on the way for Sunday night into Monday. This one looks to bring snow to more of my local area, but the totals won't be as high as Saturday night's system. If you missed it, here's a look at the totals:
For this next system there's still some question marks on the exact track. The HRRR is trying to take a similar track with little snow toward Cedar Rapids and higher totals in the northeast:
The European is similar in showing higher amounts ~2" in the northeast, but is more aggressive with more snow to the southwest:
And the GFS is similar to the HRRR:
Here's the National Weather Service forecast for Iowa:
I do think there will be more accumulation around Highway 30 with still the higher amounts in the northeast, around 2". That'll be it for the snow for this week and then the story will be the temperatures. We'll rise into the 20s in the early afternoon Monday:
Temperatures will then drop like a rock as arctic air makes it's way in. Temperatures will be well below zero Tuesday morning:
Temperatures will likely remain near zero on Tuesday afternoon.. oof:
The coldest air will come Tuesday night into Wednesday morning... teens and 20s below zero with just the AIR temperature...
We'll luckily rebound into the teens and 20s for the rest of the week!
