Snow and no snow

Posted: 16 Jan 2012 05:48 AM

The high temperature you experienced on Sunday in Iowa was very dependent on the amount of snow you received from our storm last week. Warm air surged into the state, but thanks to snow cover over eastern Iowa temperatures were much cooler than the mid 50s over western Iowa. This contrast is nicely shown by overlaying high temperatures on Sunday to visible imagery showing areas with and without snow. The forecast for this week looks to be active with another warm up expected next weekend.

Good = 25
Bad = 5
