Right now, northwest Iowa seems poised to get the biggest snow. There is, however, always a chance that the computer models could flip-flop yet again and predict lower temperatures, giving us a rain-changing-to-snow scenario for Christmas Eve. As we've seen time and time again, the computer simulations are no match for Mother Nature's unpredictable antics.
