Spring Starts Wednesday, but Will We Recognize It?
Heavy snow has fallen on parts of central, eastern and northern Iowa today.
A Blizzard Warning was posted for seven north-central Iowa counties while a large section of the state, including southeast Iowa, was under a Winter Weather Advisory. Meteorologist Miles Schumacher, at the National Weather Service, says it could be winter’s last gasp.
Parts of northern Iowa may see lows tonight in the single digits and wind chills of 15-below. High temperatures all week are expected to be quite chilly, even though the first day of spring is Wednesday, at least according to the calendar.
It’s a big change from Spring Break Week last year, when temperatures statewide were in the 80s, in the warmest Iowa March on record.
