Kicking off the latest work week with not only cloud cover and breeze conditions, we're also going to be kicking off this next week with our next measurable snow maker too. This system is going to become more organized as Monday continues and will be passing through the area slowly... moving out by Wednesday. In its wake, some of us will be left to shovel out an additional 4-6" of snow and some might even pick up more.
Winds are going to be picking up in speed, tossing around that snow throughout the overnight hours Monday into Tuesday. Tuesday, expect snow throughout the day with heavier bands of snow possible with the last of the snow wrapping up some time in the early morning hours on Wednesday. Those of us in northeastern Iowa are slated to receive the most snow, or have the best chance to receive te most snow, with 6-8" of snow possible. Farther north and west, the snow totals taper off but those of us in Albert Lea, Austin and Rochester could pick up an additional 4-6" of snow. Keep in mind, heavier bands of snow and drifting may cause localized higher amounts.
And what follows is very cold air; a strong cold front is expected to move through Thursday and cool us down well below zero for overnight lows going into Friday. Friday, the region may not even break above zero for highs...
