Cold temperatures and gusty winds resulted in dangerous wind chills
overnight and through the early morning hours. Low temperatures were 5
to 10 degrees below zero throughout Iowa, with wind chills of 25 to
30 below zero. There were also scattered snow showers over night, and
the winds resulted in blowing snow in many locations. No substantial
accumulations were reported. By late morning, a few light snow showers
were noted on radar. Visible satellite imagery showed scattered
clouds over central and eastern Iowa, but appeared to be clearing in
many areas. Temperatures were just above zero degrees in southern
Iowa and just below zero in northern Iowa. The winds have weakened
this morning, making the wind chills less dangerous.

Across the rest of the Midwest, northerly winds have kept temperatures
cold. Skies were mostly clear, with a few areas of clouds.

For the rest of today, temperatures across Iowa will reach above zero,
but likely won`t make it out of the single digits. Skies will be
clearing up, allowing for plenty of sunshine. Wind chills may remain
just below zero, but will not be extremely bitter by any means. For
the rest of the week, temperatures will warm up. Conditions should
overall be dry.
