With air temps below zero, wind chill factors are plunging into dangerous levels near 30-below in parts of Iowa this morning. A Wind Chill Advisory is posted for most of the state through noon. Meteorologist Roger Vachalek at the National Weather Service says some Iowans will see more snow today.
A warm front is pushing in that will bring light snow late today, with a dusting expected across northern Iowa and a few inches possible in the east, toward Davenport. Vachalek says somewhat warmer temperatures are in store for the weekend.
After this morning’s bone-chilling cold, highs Saturday should be in the mid to upper 20s and by Sunday and Monday, highs may reach 30, with mid 30s by Tuesday. See more of the forecast at www.weather.gov.
