Breezy winds from the east will prevail across much of the state

sustained winds were between 15 and 25 mph. The sky was mostly cloudy
over the southwestern half of the state and this is where temperatures
are the highest in the 30s to middle 40s. Where there are only high
clouds over eastern and far northern Iowa temperatures have fallen
into the upper 20s.

Clouds will gradually spread northeastward over the entire state today
with precipitation spreading in the same direction. There may be a bit
of icing over west central or northwest Iowa this morning before the
precipitation changes over predominately to rain this afternoon with
highs in the upper 30s or low 40s. As temperatures fall tonight, then
a wintry mix is expected with light icing possible over northern Iowa
and snowfall amounts generally under two inches from northwest Iowa
into east central Iowa. The wintry precipitation will end by midday
Saturday. Temperatures will rebound on Sunday into the 40s or 50s with
