The weather service says conditions are expected to worsen by sunrise as the heavy, wet snow continues to fall. Condursos Garden Center Nursery Operations Manager James Pinkerton said that business has been slow lately.

Pipestone County is in a winter storm watch beginning at 1 a.m. on Tuesday, April 3 to 10 p.m. As of right now, the southern portion of the state is not expected to be impacted by the storm.

Strong and gusty winds will develop through the day across North Iowa with gusts over 40 miles per hour possible by the afternoon. Heavier around Marathon county and farther south.

The storm will move into the Northeast overnight into Monday morning. Travel will be slow at best, to hard in locations that pick up more than 4 inches of snow.

WAND meteorologist J.C. Fultz said C-U already had 2 inches as of 6 p.m. Sunday.

Yet another storm system could bring some snow or a wintry mix to our area late Sunday into Monday of next week.

Moderate to locally heavy snowfall is likely, along with gusty winds, which will create blowing snow and reduced visibility.

As the previous record breaking snow melts, North Iowa looks to get a fresh snow Tuesday.

The worst travel conditions will be Tuesday into Tuesday evening, with snow covered roads a good bet. Regardless, a couple of inches of snow remain possible - especially on colder surfaces.

Very cold temperatures, at least by early April standards, are expected to set in Sunday with high temperatures only in the teens and lows dropping to near zero on Monday morning. Wind chills on Easter morning are in the single digits and teens across much of the Midwest.

High temperatures will be 10 to 30 degrees below average this weekend across the northern Rockies, northern and central Plains and the upper and mid-Mississippi Valley.
