Warming Trend to Follow Wednesday’s Snowstorm

Wednesday’s rare spring snowstorm brought quite a bit of snow to parts of Iowa.

The National Weather Service says the highest snowfall totals were in far northern Iowa, with up to twelve inches reported along the Iowa/Minnesota border. Snowfall amounts of one to four inches were seen along and north of Highway 20, with over three and a half inches reported in Strawberry Point.

The National Weather Service warns runoff from some of that snowmelt could lead to rises on some area rivers and streams over the next several days.

Most of us are hoping that Wednesday’s snowstorm was the last one of the season… and according to the long-range forecast, that could be true. Temperatures are expected to reach into the 50s this weekend and into the 60s all of next week… pretty close to where we should be for this time of year.
