'17-'18 Winter Storm #6

Posted: 12 Jan 2018 07:54 AM

Our brief respite from cold winter weather ended on Thursday as a winter storm brought rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow to the state. The amount of snow produced was under what was anticipated, but the cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills did materialize for today. The featured map presents a smooth analysis of reports received. There were fewer than normal amount of reports made for this event as generally low totals and cold temperatures likely were discouraging for snowfall reports to be made. More snow and cold is in the forecast as winter rolls on for Iowa.

Good = 9
Bad = 2
Abstain = 1
