230 AM CST Sun Dec 4 2016
Wintry conditions made a return to the region overnight, as snow
gradually overspread the area from the south. Accumulation through
the early morning hours generally ranged from just a dusting near
the Interstate 94 corridor to as much as an inch across portions of
northern Iowa and eastern Minnesota. Despite the snow, temperatures
were still rather mild for this time of year, holding in the upper
20s and lower 30s.
Periods of snow will continue today, heaviest this morning, before
gradually tapering off from west to east by early evening.
Additional accumulation of 1 to 4 inches is expected for many areas,
highest over eastern Iowa into western Wisconsin. Temperatures will
warm very little, only reaching the lower to middle 30s.
Clouds look to depart tonight into Monday, with milder and dry
conditions to start the work week. However, a return to much colder
weather is on the way into mid and late week as temperatures take a
dive back below normal.
