NW Iowa Snow! … New Site Page!

Last night into today featured a fast moving system that brought quite a bit of rain and even snow to areas of the state. Some areas of northwest Iowa actually received accumulating snowfall, with Orange City coming out with nearly an inch of snowfall. Other areas of northwest Iowa also received light accumulation to a dusting of snowfall that was able to actually stay on the ground for a while. Otherwise, the rest of the state was under a pretty good sheet of rain for most of the morning. This system has moved off quickly and the state is fairly dry now this afternoon, however with another system moving in by Friday night the area won’t have much time to dry. This system should bring rainfall into the picture on Friday night, but during the day on Saturday as temperatures once again begin to drop a mix of rain/snow will be possible. Along with this next system will come the cold temperatures, with lows below 30 degrees and highs only reaching into the lower 40s in the warmest region of the state.

Also, for a little site update, I have a new page that is featured on the website. This is mainly a page for college and career people, as it features 4-year plan for courses, course justifications and several goals pertaining to education and career. I figured I would share it with everybody though, so along with the link under ‘ISU’ on my webpage navigation bar, here is the link: ISU Student Portfolio
