An area of low pressure was centered over Nebraska this morning. A
warm front extended east from the low across southern Iowa into
central Illinois. A cold front extended from Ontario southwest
across Minnesota into South Dakota. Rain showers were falling
across southern Wisconsin into Illinois while light snow was
falling along the cold front over Minnesota. Temperatures ranged
from the teens over northern Minnesota to the 50s in southern Iowa
into Illinois.

The area of low pressure will move into southern Iowa today as the
cold front drops south into Wisconsin and Iowa. Light snow will
continue across northern Wisconsin into central Minnesota this
morning before mixing with some rain during the afternoon. The
rest of the region will have a chance of rain through the day as
the area of low pressure moves east. Some thunderstorms could also
occur across eastern Iowa into Illinois and portions of southern
Wisconsin. High temperatures are expected to range from the 20s
across northern Minnesota to the 70s for southeast Iowa.

For tonight, the area of low pressure will race northeast into
lower Michigan dragging the cold front across the area. As colder
air moves in, the rain will gradually change over to light snow
for all but parts of eastern Iowa. Any accumulations tonight
should be less than an inch. Look for low temperatures to range
from the single digits above zero to the 40s.
