Hurricane Zeta roared onshore over Louisiana on Wednesday afternoon as a category 2 hurricane. The featured RADAR mosaic is valid at about the time of landfall and shows a crazy combination of winter storm over the southern plains next to the hurricane. Iowa will miss out on any impacts from either storm as the both slide off well to our south and east. A dry stretch of weather is expected for Iowa over the next seven days which will provide some help for the agricultural crops yet to be harvested.
