ranging from the the upper single digits in the northwest to the low
20s in the southeast. Coupled with some breezy west winds, especially
in the northwest, wind chills dipped down towards negative 10 in the
northwest and into the teens in the southeast. By late this morning,
high clouds continued to stream over the state, allowing some sun to
peek through. Temperatures had risen a few degrees across the state as

The cold air will continue to filter across the state and result in
Thursday being the coldest day of the week for most. Highs range from
the upper teens to the low 20s along with wind chills around or below
zero most of the day. Friday will be a similar day to Thursday
temperature wise, but with lighter winds. The weekend will see a bit
of a warm up, into the 20s and low 30s, before another push of cold
air towards the beginning of next week. The next chance for
precipitation, in this case snow with all of the cold air, will move
through during the weekend. Northern Iowa looks to receive the best
chances, possibly resulting in a few inches of snow while central and
southern Iowa will likely see lighter amounts.
