April Brings Winter Weather

The calendar may say April, but winter’s not done just yet…

Snow is expected to move into eastern Iowa late tonight into tomorrow morning, with the heaviest snow in our northern counties. Clayton and Fayette counties are expected to see two to five inches of snow, along with ice accumulations of one-tenth of an inch. The National Weather Service says most of that snow will fall between 7 am and 5 pm on Tuesday. The winds will pick up too, gusting as high as 35 miles per hour.

Lesser snow amounts are expected further south, with one to three inches of snow possible in Delaware, Dubuque and Buchanan counties and an inch or less likely south of Highway 20.

And this system is bringing in some arctic air, with lows dropping into the teens Tuesday night. Wind chills will be around zero as we head into Wednesday morning. And we’ll end the week with highs only in the 20’s on Friday… one of the coldest starts to April we’ve seen in years.
