Heading into Tuesday, the relatively warmer conditions are expected to
continue through the early part of the day. Tuesday may bring a
freezing drizzle to freezing rain and sleet mix to Iowa. At this
time, amounts are expected to be low enough to have little to minimal
impact on travel. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s across
northern Iowa to the mid 40s across southeastern Iowa.
Another round of light flurries is possible Wednesday into Thursday.
Conditions will cool down Thursday and Friday as a cold front will
