Active (and still cold) start to December

    Strong storm moves into eastern Iowa Saturday

    The weather won't be changing too much as we turn the calendar to December. Temperatures have been well below normal for the month of November and that will continue to be the case into the start of the new month.

    A weak disturbance will move through eastern Iowa Thursday evening. A light wintry mix will be possible with little to no accumulation expected. A stronger storm moves in over the weekend. Out ahead of the storm, as warm air moves in, dense fog will be possible near and south of I-80 as snow starts to melt.

    With temperatures above freezing, rain will be the primary form of precipitation. Rain may be heavy at times with unseasonably high moisture levels in place. There will be a changeover to a wintry mix and then snow starting from north to south late Saturday into Sunday.

    Winter Storm Watch

    Then cold air files back into eastern Iowa for the start of December. November is likely going to end up in the top 10 coldest on record in eastern Iowa and December will also start below normal.
