As expected, areas in northern Iowa had between 2-3" of snow from mainly just north of a line from Fort Dodge to Cedar Rapids. We had less than 1/2" officially at the DSM Airport. With that fresh snow cover, arctic air was able to just SLIDE down over the state pushing our temps below 0°. Then some areas of northern Iowa barely got back to ZERO this afternoon!
Tonight we'll see our coldest temps early on then steady to slightly rising temps are expected after midnight. We a good amount of sunshine and a southwest breeze we will have a decent warm up by afternoon! While it will still be below average, we should have highs in the upper 20s and even a few 30s are likely in SW Iowa!
The weekend is looking pretty quiet overall here, but there could be some snow clip SE Iowa Friday nigh. In fact, we should remain dry in central Iowa through most of the next 7 days. There could be a bigger storm brewing late next week though! Tune in to ABC5 for the latest!
Have a good night!
