Areas of freezing drizzle will continue through the morning commute, especially the farther northeast you go. Main roads will generally remain wet, though any side streets or rural roads may be rather slick at times. Overall, a cloudy day is ahead with steady temperatures in the teens. A 10-20 mph wind will keep wind chills near zero this morning and a few degrees below zero this afternoon.
Overall, our extended forecast remains extremely active. Though major storms are not anticipated, smaller ones impacting the area nearly on a daily basis will be common. Our next system may create a light dusting of snow in the area tomorrow. Friday’s snow is still on track to arrive in the late afternoon and evening hours and should only bring minor amounts of accumulating snow to northern Iowa. There is little chance of accumulating snow over southern Iowa with that one.
This weekend, another low pressure system could impact the area, especially the farther south you go. Arctic air will be coming into the Midwest at the same time, which will keep our temperatures well below normal. Additional snowfall will only serve to enhance the cold into the first part of next week
