Small precipitation chances ahead

Overall the rest of the week is looking fairly quiet for most with the exception of a clipper that may bring some light snow or flurries to northern Iowa Thursday night.

A clipper will dive southeast over the northern Rockies and emerge into South Dakota and continue to track through central and southern Iowa through the day and into the evening on Thursday.

The system has just enough moisture and dynamics that it may produce some light snow across far northern Iowa with very little or no accumulation possible. The higher chance to see sticking snow at this point looks to be in central and southern Iowa. However, the track may still change and it’s something to keep an eye on.

Another system has its eye on the area by the middle of next week. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30s so it’s possible the area sees multiple precipitation types including rain, snow and a wintry mix. This is still more than one week away so changes in the overall track and evolution will be likely in the days ahead.
