Snow for parts of Iowa / Wisconsin?
I’d never expect myself to be writing this article this late in the season, but if northern Minnesota can get 8 inches of wet sloppy snow over the latter part of last weekend, I’m sure some snow showers could be squeezed out of the next storm system, but we’ll see. The latest models are depicting a clipper like storm track over the upper midwestern United States later this weekend. This is the typical Alberta clipper storm track you’d see in the winter time delivering with it a quick hitting area of snow.
This pattern looks to drop down from the Pacific Northwest delivering with it cooler temperatures and some heavy rainfall for a good chunk of Nebraska on east of that, in fact the 00z NAM even tries to eek out some snow from Iowa on northeast through central and southern Wisconsin.
And this being the actual surface temperatures during the onslaught of the precipitation;
I am really having a hard time believing this but I cannot rule it out, at least creating some light snow over this area, it has a cooler air source and is coming from Canada, and makes the all too familar track northeast, but we shall see! GFS is much warmer.
Will post a couple more updates as we get closer to this if any other data shows this. Please feel free to discuss this subject below!
