Spring still not in sight, another round of snow targeting north Iowa

Charles City Street Department crews blow snow on Main Street on December 17th, 2016 after a winter storm.

Des Moines, Iowa – Northern Iowa is in the path of yet another winter storm. National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Fowle says the next system is expected to bring more heavy snow to the area, along and north of Highway 20, late tonight through Wednesday.

Winter Storm Warnings have been issue across the area and to make matters even worse, there could be a period of freezing rain.

Areas south of Highway 20 can expect mostly rain late Tuesday and Wednesday. High temperatures statewide today will be warmer than the past few days and Fowle expects conditions to further improve later this week, with temps climbing into the 40s and 50s.

The weekend storm included some record-breaking temperatures. Des Moines, Waterloo, Ottumwa, and Mason City broke records on Sunday for coldest-high temperatures for the date.
