'17-'18 Winter Storm #26

Posted: 09 Apr 2018 07:53 AM

Could this finally be winter's last significant snow storm for Iowa? I suspect that most folks are hoping that the answer is yes. The featured map depicts the highest totals over north central Iowa with amounts over eight inches reported in select areas. The other big story with this event was the very cold temperatures with locations flirting near all time April lows around this event. Typically when we see snowfall in April, there is a warm side of the storm with rain reported, but not so with this event as it almost all fell as snowfall. The forecast has very warm temperatures in store later this week, but pessimism is strong after the last few weeks of not-spring weather.

Good = 9
Bad = 1
Abstain = 1
