More flurries will be flying over Iowa today and while there won’t be much in terms of new snow piling up, the storm system will bring dangerously cold temperatures. Karl Jungbluth, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, says it’s coming on the heels of Monday’s winter blast that left up to ten inches of snow in parts of northwest Iowa.
Jungbluth says this storm will be much more tame, by comparison. Jungbluth says there won’t be much accumulation at all, maybe a half-inch to an inch of snow north of Interstate-80 and it’ll be just a dusting south of I-80. While the snowfall will be minimal, he says this storm’s punch will come in terms of the extremely frigid temperatures it’ll bring into Iowa.
Jungbluth says: "We’ve got Wind Chill Advisories out for pretty much the entire state. Winds this afternoon and evening could be up to 25-miles-an-hour and the wind chills, as temperatures fall into the single digits, in the north part of the state would be in the minus-20 to minus-30 range, and in the southern half of the state, as low as minus-20." He says there’s a chance for more snow on Friday, followed by slightly warmer weather this weekend, with highs perhaps in the 30s.
