Frigid temperatures are expected hang around Iowa most of this week, but no significant snowfall’s in the forecast. National Weather Service Meteorologist Jacob Beitlich says low temperatures tonight into tomorrow morning will range from the single digits to teens below zero.
So, negative three to negative five in the southern half of Iowa,” Beitlich said. “We could see temperatures as cold as minus-15 in the northwest.” A Wind Chill Advisory covers a large chunk of the state, although winds will only hit 10 to 15 miles per hour.
“But, with temperatures that low, that’s enough to put wind chills at 20-to-30 below zero,” Beitlich said. The cold temperatures should last through Friday. Beitlich says things could climb above the freezing point for the weekend.
High temperatures on Saturday should be in the 30s statewide on Saturday. “On Sunday, we could see temperatures in the 40s,” Beitlich said. “So, spring-like temperatures are on the horizon.”
