Winter like weather to persist with cold and chances for snow
A winter like chill unfortunately will continue to persist resulting in below normal temperatures through the middle of next week as cold air plunges back into eastern Iowa and the Midwest.
A few disturbances will sweep through the area over the next several days, and with cold air in place that will lead to additional chances for snow.
The first will track through Thursday with the chance of a light rain/snow shower. Not everyone will see precipitation and they will be fairly isolated. Temperatures will range from the upper 30s in the snow covered areas to the north and northwest and 40s everywhere else.
High pressure will build in from the north on Friday with another system tracking through on the southern periphery of the high and could spread some light snow as far north as I-80, but at this point highest chances look to remain in southern Iowa.
The weekend will start with sunshine and temps near 40 on Saturday with increasing snow chances on Sunday as a stronger storm system sweeps through. At this point, accumulations are likely for much of eastern Iowa, but confidence is low on exact numbers as it is still too early, but this will get resolved over the coming days. Stay tuned, winter weather is far from over.
