The National Weather Service in Des Moines says that the next round of accumulating snow will fall on Sunday into Sunday night with the highest totals in Northwestern Iowa.

The GEM Model (Global Environmental Multiscale) shows up to 4" of snow falling in Northwestern Iowa by Monday morning:


If you're keeping score; last week I posted an article about the future chance of snow impacting Iowa on Monday that saw Polk City receive 9" of October snow. The GEM forecast model that was posted on October 14th showed the storm hitting Northern and Northeastern Iowa --- it ended up mainly impacted all of Central Iowa along I-80. So a lot can change.
