539 PM CDT Mon Mar 20 2017
In many spots, it was just a bit cooler today than yesterday, but
still a very comfortable day with partly cloudy to sunny skies abound.
With northerly to northeasterly winds prevailing, temperatures were
still able to reach into the upper 50s to near 60 from north to south
across Iowa. By early this evening, temperatures were already a few
degrees cooler than daytime highs thanks to cooler air pushing into
If you can fathom it, a bit of snow will push through northwest and
central Iowa this evening as a disturbance moves through. Hard to
believe after the warm temperatures of the last couple of days.
Expected accumulations are under one inch, through a bit more may be
experienced within very small areas of heavier snow. Temperatures
through mid-week will be a bit below normal with highs predominantly
in the 40s before warming back up into the 50s and 60s for Friday.
After the bit of rain and snow moving through parts of the state and
region tonight, the next opportunities look to move in sporadically
from the west Wednesday and then more widespread Thursday and Friday.
The best opportunity for any thunderstorms will be Friday.
