While more snow is spreading across the state today — but one aspect of the winter weather should be a little more tolerable. National Weather Service meteorologist, Rich Kinney, says Iowa should miss the sub-zero temperatures we endured last week.
Kinney says the bitterly cold arctic air is not expected to get down into Iowa in the next week and he says by the weekend we could have temperatures rebounding into the 30’s and 40’s. Kinney says today and tomorrow will likely be the coldest days of the week.
He says we should have highs Tuesday in the 20’s and Wednesday should be dry with highs around 20 in northeast Iowa into the mid 30’s in the southwest. Kinney says there could be another storm later this week that’s not as widespread.
Kinney says we could see a fast-moving "Clipper type" system that glances the northeast part of the state, but they don’t expect any heavy amounts of snow. Kinney says today’s storm could drop from one to six inches of snow on the state, depending on your location.
