Iowans are seeing a slight warm-up this morning with high temps expected in the 20s and 30s in many areas, but another cold front is headed our way within hours — and it’s bringing snow. Meteorologist Frank Boksa, at the National Weather Service, says the blast of frigid air will be arriving soon.
The cold front will arrive late this afternoon and tonight, producing wind chills overnight from 20 to 25-below zero. A wind chill advisory is posted for 14 counties in northern Iowa from 8 tonight through 9 Thursday morning.
Boksa says parts of Iowa will be in for a chance of light snow tomorrow and another chance of precipitation later this weekend. The front will move across Iowa during the day and could bring snow to central Iowa, though eastern Iowa may get more snow. See the latest forecast at: www.weather-dot-gov.
