GREY SKIES CONTINUED ACROSS MOST OF THE REGION FOR THIS MORNING.
THERE WERE ALSO PATCHES OF FOG ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION WHICH
DROPPED VISIBILITY DOWN TO HALF A MILE OR LESS AT TIMES. WITH THE
CLOUD DECK IN PLACE...TEMPERATURES DID NOT FALL VERY FAR
OVERNIGHT. AFTER A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 57 DEGREES YESTERDAY...DES
MOINES HAD A 10 AM TEMPERATURE OF 56 DEGREES. WATERLOO HAD A 10
AM TEMPERATURE OF 48 DEGREES...AND WITH WARMER AIR TO THE
SOUTHWEST...AND 10 AM...IT WAS 45 DEGREES IN EAU
CLAIRE...WISCONSIN. WINDS THIS MORNING WERE BLOWING FROM THE SOUTH AT
AROUND 5 TO 10 MPH.

WE CAN EXPECT THIS CLOUD DECK TO PERSIST INTO MONDAY. REINFORCING
LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE ARRIVING TODAY WHICH WILL KEEP THE FOG
AND CLOUDS AROUND TODAY. WITH THIS MOISTURE WILL COME WARMER
TEMPERATURES. HIGHS SHOULD MAKE IT INTO THE 50S AND EVEN 60S

AROUND A TENTH TO A QUARTER OF AN INCH IS GENERALLY EXPECTED.
COOLER AIR WILL BE COMING INTO THE REGION FOR MONDAY INTO TUESDAY
AS A COLD FRONT IS SLATED TO PASS THROUGH THE REGION. WITH THIS
COLD FRONT...TEMPERATURES WILL DROP BELOW FREEZING...MEANING THERE
WILL LIKELY BE A WINTRY MIX STARTING OVER THE DAKOTAS MONDAY
MORNING...AND SHIFTING EASTWARD INTO IOWA BY MONDAY EVENING AND
TUESDAY MORNING. THE BEST CHANCE OF ACCUMULATING SNOW WILL BE FROM
NORTHERN IOWA AND LOCATIONS FURTHER TO THE NORTH AND WEST ON
MONDAY NIGHT. BEHIND THIS SYSTEM...HIGHS SHOULD BE NEAR TO BELOW
