Small says today’s snow is not unprecedented, but it is rare. He says temperatures vary a lot during the spring. He says many cities could set record low highs today. As for the holiday weekend ahead, Small says the forecast is split with cool weather until Sunday and Monday.Many parts of Iowa are expecting highs today only in the 40s and 50s.
