The Snow Is Still Coming, But Not As Soon Or As Heavily As Originally Forecast

Date posted - February 20, 2013

National Weather Service NWS logoOn Tuesday of this week, the National Weather Service forecast for the KIWA listening area called for 6 inches or more of snow to fall on us beginning this (Thursday) morning.  And while there is a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect beginning tonight (2/21), National Weather Service meteorologists in Sioux Falls say that now the snow isn’t expected to develop until this evening.

Meteorologist Brad Adams, from the National Weather Service Forecast Center in Sioux Falls, says that a lack of moisture has been part of the cause for the change in forecast.

Adams tells us that the heavier snow is now forecast to fall further to our south.

He says that once this system passes through our area we’ll have a short lull in the action, but more snowfall is possible into next week.

While large volumes of snow is probably not on most peoples’ wish list at this point in the winter, we need to remember two things:  First, we desperately need the precipitation; and second, it is, after all, February in Iowa.

    Winter storm Q? Apparently the Midwest doesn’t warrant a fully named storm, or maybe the decision makers at the Weather Channel are James Bond fanatics!
