At Least One More Snow Before Spring….

It’s March 10th and many of us are already looking forward to the warmer weather, green grass, spring flowers, and budding trees.

The last thing many of you want to think about is SNOW.  However, if you’re reading this from the Quad Cities, the Mississippi and Illinois Valleys, or anywhere nearby, we live in the Midwest and we have still have snow in March and April.  It may not last as long, but it still snows and accumulates.

I’m reporting in to you from Fort Dodge, Iowa, located in the northwestern part of the Hawkeye state.  It started snowing here this morning, but it didn’t amount to anymore than a dusting.  More is on the way across Iowa today.

For the Quad Cities, it’s going to be a rainy and mild day with highs around 40-45 degrees.  Later Sunday evening, that rain will mix with and change to snow for Sunday night.  Accumulations should not top 1-3″.

If you’re heading off toward Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, and central and western Iowa, accumulations will be in the 4-9″ range!

Many counties in the aforementioned heavier snow forecast areas have a “Winter Weather Advisory” and a “Winter Storm Warning” in effect.

After a chilly day Monday following the snow, temperatures will begin a warming trend Tuesday.

Be safe tonight and Monday and hold out for spring!

Anthony
