(DES MOINES) More snow is headed our way!
A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Mills, Montgomery, Fremont, Page, Adair, Madison, Adams and Union counties from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.
Miles Schumacher, with the National Weather Service in Des Moines, says the bulk of the heavy snow will remain to the south with around 6 to 7 inches near the Missouri Border and tapering off as you head north.
“As far as southwest Iowa, in the southwest corner of the state probably 4 or 5 inches, in the Atlantic area probably 2 or 3 inches and then as you head further north toward Carroll and Denison around an inch to an inch and a half amount around there,” said Schumacher.
Schumacher said it doesn’t look like there will be a great deal of wind so there won’t be a blizzard situation. He said it also looks like it will be a long snow event.
“Probably snow for 24 or 30 hours, so it’s not going to be a sudden dumping and make a big mess that way, so it shouldn’t be all that difficult to handle,” explained Schumacher.
Schumacher said the cool weather will remain with us until the middle part of next week, but it does look like it will warm up a bit by Easter Sunday.
