Cloudy and rainy conditions will spread across the state today, but temperatures are expected to remain above freezing so roads won’t become slick. However, National Weather Service meteorologist Karl Jungbluth says dense fog could present some problems. “Visibilities could become an issue after midnight tonight, especially for areas roughly north of I-80 where there is snow on the ground,” Jungbluth says.
Temperatures will remain well above normal for this time of year through tomorrow, but a strong cold front is expected for the weekend. Jungbluth says highs on Saturday will range from the teens in northwest Iowa to the lower 40s in the southeast.
By Sunday morning, lows will be near zero in some areas of the state. “Quite a bit chillier, but it doesn’t look like temperatures will get to zero or below, so that’s not really too unusual for this time of year,” Jungbluth said. The cool conditions are expected to hang around into next week, but there are no major snow storms in the forecast.
