First Accumulating Snow for Most People in the Midwest

We are looking at the first Alberta Clipper of the season to drop some measurable snow across parts of the Upper Midwest tomorrow and Tuesday night. With the unseasonably cold airmass in place and area of low pressure will drive south from Canada and ride along this boundary, dropping rain and snow along the way. It is not out of the question to see 2" on grassy surfaces in parts of Iowa, maybe 3" if we can get some banding going, which is often the the wintertime. The rest of the week and beyond is still looking very cold, no changes in sight.
