March 4, 3 PM Weather Forecast Update

Record cold & more snow ahead.

Posted: Mar 4, 2019 2:02 PM
Updated: Mar 4, 2019 2:21 PM

Some areas of light snow & flurries are possible Tuesday morning.  A light dusting is possible in places.

After a low near 5 tonight (then rising to 10 as the clouds move in late), highs tomorrow should reach around 19.

Scattered snow showers & flurries are likely Tuesday afternoon-evening.  Localized dustings of snow are possible.

After a dry, cold Wednesday with highs near 26 (after near 9 in the morning), snow is likely Thursday.  Band of heaviest +6" snow is shaping up from central Iowa to central Illinois to Newton, Jasper & Benton counties.

Confidence is still medium, given that it is still several days out, but potential is there for the rest of the area to receive 3-6".

Brisk southeast to east to northeast winds to 30 mph will cause blowing & drifting issues, despite the snow being wetter & heavier in nature.

It appears that some snow could make it to the southwestern half by late morning Thursday, but for much of the area, it will be midday to afternoon when it moves in.

It should not completely exit the area until early Friday morning.

The snow could briefly change to some freezing rain & rain in the far southwest by late Thursday night-Friday morning before ending.

We should run 25-30 Thursday to Thursday evening, then rise to 29-34 Thursday night-Friday morning.  Friday should see falling temperatures after a high of 32-36.

Next weekend, looks like heavy, wind-driven snow northwest of our area in Iowa & parts of Illinois, but wind-driven rain here before it ends as snow with 0.5" or less of accumulation.  With low pressure occluding, we should see a jog to the northwest with the center, pushing the heavy snow northwestward.

With the occlusion, it should keep the 60s southeast of our area, so we will stay in the 40s.

If we can somehow get the warm front north, rather than occluded front, then we could see at least 50s.

Rain to snow is possible mid-next week with heavy snowfall not that far away to our northwest.  We will monitor.
