A frontal boundary continues to stretch from southern Wisconsin into
far southeast Iowa and central Missouri. The winter storm will
continue to affect the region today with rain from eastern Missouri
into Illinois and Indiana. Farther west, freezing rain will persist
from western Missouri into portions of Iowa and Wisconsin. Light snow
is also expected over parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The
precipitation will slowly shift toward the Ohio River Valley by
tonight as colder air pours across much of the region. Below normal
temperatures are expected on Wednesday throughout the Midwest as
Canadian high pressure moves through the area. Another round of winter
weather is expected Thursday into early Friday over the Midwest
including Iowa. Light freezing rain and snow are once again possible
in Iowa and surrounding state during this time before the system exits
Friday. Seasonable temperatures are expected into the weekend with
another round of precipitation possible on Saturday into early Sunday
as an active weather pattern persists.
