Forecasters say tonight’s temperatures across Iowa could easily be the coldest in many months and wind chill factors will likely enter the danger zone. National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Cogil says very frigid weather is upon us and it’ll only get more bitterly cold this evening.While a wind chill advisory covers much of the state, Cogil says it’s something everyone should pay attention to, from kids playing in the snow to motorists and anyone else who’ll be outside and exposed to the severe cold winds.The wind chill indices may hit between 20 and 30-below zero tonight, easily cold enough to cause frostbite or more serious problems. Sunday’s snowstorm brought a white blanket to much of the state, after temperatures reached the 50s on Friday. Cogil says southern Iowa got the most snow from this winter storm, with many areas getting six to nine inches, and the town of Leon in Decatur County reported the deepest snow at ten inches. Parts of central Iowa got three to six inches of snow but it tapered off in the north to an inch or less. He says much of Iowa should see more seasonable temperatures in the 20s by week’s end.
