CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/Fox28) -- After a wild start to October the weather is calming down and cooling down. A big area of high pressure from Canada will be in overhead and lead to the first freeze of the season. Skies will clear some and winds will die down Thursday night, which will allow temperatures to drop near and below freezing.
Widespread frost will be likely across eastern Iowa by Friday morning. This is not unusual for this time of year - typically the first freeze happens around October 9th. This also means freezing temperatures will become more likely over the next few weeks.
