We aren't done with winter just yet ... We're tracking another winter storm that will move through our area beginning overnight Monday and throughout Tuesday. Moderate accumulations of 3-6" are expected for north Iowa and southern Minnesota with a potential for 6 to 8" of snowfall in southern Minnesota, around places like Rochester. This will linger throughout Tuesday as the wind remains strong as well. It will be cold for Tuesday night with lows in the double digits and highs will only get into the 20's on Wednesday with sunshine.
It'll be a fairly quiet rest of the week, but it will remain cool. Our next system will move in on Sunday and will look to bring another rain/snow mix to the area.
It was only nine days ago that many locations in north Iowa saw more than a foot of snow. Mason City topped out at 17.5 inches during that storm.
