(Atlantic) The National Weather Service in Des Moines is tracking a storm coming out of the west that has the potential of dumping a large amount of snow in the KSOM/KS95 listening area beginning Monday night.
Brad Fillbach, meteorologist with the National Weather Service tells KSOM/KS95 news that a system is forecast to pass through southwest and southern Iowa beginning Monday night and continue through the overnight hours on Tuesday.
Fillbach admits the storm track could change between now and Monday night, but as of now it appears the southern two-thirds of the state could receive anywhere from six-to-eight inches of snowfall. He says the northern part of the state will recieve lighter amounts. Fillbach says the winds are expected to blow out of the northwest at 15-to-25 miles per hour which will cause travel difficulties.
