Blustery winds and bitter cold temperatures today resulted in
dangerously cold wind chills of 15 to 30 below zero. At 5 PM, the
coldest wind chill was 29 below zero at Sheldon, Iowa. The blustery
winds also caused patch blowing snow throughout the day and many
streets and roads remained slick and snow covered.

The stout northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to near 35 mph
will continue tonight into Tuesday morning. Wind chills of 20 to 35
below zero are likely at times tonight into Tuesday morning. The
winds gradually decrease Tuesday but look to remain in the 10 to 25
mph range and will produce wind chills of 20 to 30 below zero
throughout the day. One more night of bitter cold temperatures
Tuesday night before temperatures start to rebound back into the 20s
on Wednesday. By Thursday, highs are expected to rise into the 30s and
Friday and Saturday temperatures will be well into the 40s. A strong
storm system looks possibly on Sunday into next Monday bringing the
chances of rain and snow to the region.
