Snowy day across central Iowa

Snow wraps up, cold moves in



SPEAKING OVER THE NEXT EIGHT DAYS OR SO. SO IT’S SO HARD I MEAN, WE’VE GOT THE COLD. YEAH, WE’VE GOT TO THE COLD. IT IS THE UPPER MIDWEST. AS WE HEAD INTO THE REST OF THE DAY TODAY, WE’VE GOT WELL, A LOT OF CLOUDS OUT THERE RIGHT NOW. AND I THINK THOSE CLOUDS WILL STICK AROUND THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS TONIGHT. WE COULD STILL SEE A FEW SNOWFLAKES FLYING ACROSS THE METRO AREA AS WE HEAD INTO THE EVENING. WE’VE GOT ONE SNOW SHOWER NOW MOVING INTO PORTIONS OF FORT DODGE OUT TOWARDS BOONE COUNTY, GREEN COUNTY AS WELL. DOWN THROUGH PERRY. YOU’RE SEEING A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT SNOW FOR THE DINNER HOUR, BUT THAT’S ABOUT IT. SOME SNOWFLAKES FLYING OR TRYING TO FLY INTO PORTIONS OF WESTERN MOINES OUT TOWARDS WAUKEE VAN METER, UP THROUGH PLACES LIKE PERRY, AS I MENTIONED, GRANGER. AND THEN IF THIS HOLDS TOGETHER, WE’RE PUSHING INTO WESTERN PORTIONS OF POLK COUNTY HERE AS WE HEAD INTO THE NEXT 20 TO 30 MINUTES. SO ANYONE COULD SEE SOME SNOWFLAKES HERE AT TIMES TONIGHT. AGAIN, MOST OF THE ROADWAYS. OKAY. BUT IF THERE ARE SECONDARY ROADS THAT DO SEE A COATING OF SNOW LATER ON THIS EVENING, COULD MAKE FOR SOME SLICK SPOTS EARLY TOMORROW MORNING. WE STAY WELL BELOW FREEZING TONIGHT. WE’RE IN THE TWENTIES FOR A LOT OF SPOTS, ESPECIALLY OUT INTO WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE. FEELS LIKE TEMPERATURE, A WIND CHILL RIGHT NOW IN THE LOW 20 TO UPPER TEENS. SO IT IS A COLD NIGHT AHEAD. BUNDLE UP YOUR OUT AND ABOUT TONIGHT. I’LL BE ANOTHER COLD START TOMORROW MORNING. TEMPERATURES FALL BACK INTO THE UPPER MID TO UPPER TWENTIES HERE TONIGHT AND THERE COULD BE A FEW CHANCES FOR SOME LATE SNOW EARLY TOMORROW MORNING. NOT LOOKING AT MUCH ACCUMULATION WITH THAT, BUT WE’VE GOT SOME LEFTOVER MOISTURE THAT’S KIND OF HANGING AROUND THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF YOUR DAY ON WEDNESDAY. UNFORTUNATELY, HIGH TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO DROP HERE AS WE HEAD INTO THE WORKWEEK, I THINK TOMORROW, THURSDAY RIGHT AROUND 30 DEGREES. THEN IT GETS EVEN COLDER AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES STICKING IN. THE 20 IS THERE FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON. SO QUITE A BIT BELOW THE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR TYPICALLY OR WE’RE IN THE UPPER FORTIES, SO WE’LL BE STAYING IN THE TWENTIES, IN THE THIRTIES AT LEAST THROUGH THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. FUTURE CAST LOOKS LIKE THIS. THE SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT OFF TO THE EAST HERE TONIGHT AS THAT SYSTEM DEPARTS, YOU’LL SEE A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE THAT TRIES TO WRAP BACK AROUND HERE ACROSS NORTH CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE STATE AND INTO EASTERN IOWA BY EARLY TOMORROW MORNING. THIS IS AROUND 4 AM SO WE’VE GOT A FEW SNOW SHOWERS OUT THERE. AGAIN, NOT LOOKING AT ACCUMULATION. SNOW SHOWERS SHOULD BE PRETTY LIGHT IN NATURE. AND THEY’RE OUT OF HERE BY MID-MORNING. SO BUT WE ARE LEFT WITH A LOT OF CLOUDS HERE THROUGHOUT WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A CLOUDY, COLD DAY ON WEDNESDAY. AND THEN WE’VE SEE A LITTLE BIT OF SUNSHINE RETURN BY THURSDAY. BUT THOSE WINDS PICK UP BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON. WE’RE LOOKING AT A COLD END TO THE WORKWEEK WITH TEMPERATURES THERE INTO TWENTIES. SO TONIGHT, LOW TO MID TWENTIES ACROSS THE STATE, A FEW SNOWFLAKES POSSIBLE BY THE TIME YOU’RE WAKING UP TOMORROW, KIDS ARE HEADING OFF TO SCHOOL. A CHILLY START AFTERNOON HOURS. WE STAY RIGHT AROUND 30 DEGREES. SO TOMORROW’S FORECAST, MOST OF US RIGHT AT THAT FREEZING MARK OR BELOW IT, SLIGHTLY WARMER AS YOU HEAD INTO EASTERN IOWA BY TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT A FORECAST, LOOKS LIKE THIS BREEZY FOR THURSDAY WILL MAKE IT FEEL A LITTLE BIT COLDER THAN IT ACTUALLY IS 20 ON THE BOARD THERE FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY OVERNIGHT LOWS GETTING PRETTY CLOSE TO SINGLE DIGIT TERRITORY THERE BY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY MORNINGS, WE STAY IN THE THIRTIES THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AND THEN FINALLY IT LOOKS LIKE WE’VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF A WARM UP COMING RIGHT BEFORE
