WHAT WAS A RAINY NIGHT ACROSS IOWA BECAME A SNOWY MORNING ACROSS
IOWA. A VERY POTENT COLD FRONT PUSHED THROUGH THE REGION OVERNIGHT

REMAIN IN THE LOW TO UPPER 20S BY THE LATE AFTERNOON.

FOR TOMORROW...LOWS WILL BE IN THE TEENS AND LOW 20S ACROSS THE
REGION AND HIGHS WILL MAKE IT INTO THE 30S UNDER PARTLY TO MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES. 2 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW LOOK POSSIBLE ACROSS CENTRAL
IOWA TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. BEHIND THIS
SYSTEM...WINDS WILL BE FROM THE NORTHWEST AT AROUND 15 TO 25
