We have already experienced the cold temperatures and snow, but our temperatures are forecast to get a lot colder as an arctic air mass moves in late Sunday into early next week.
Today will be warmer than yesterday, but not warm by any stretch of the imagination. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 30s with a breezy south wind 10-20 mph. The cold air is still bottled up in the Arctic.
Low pressure trackes to our north tomorrow, giving our temperatures a boost! Highs will be near 40° in northern Iowa, to lower 50s in southern portions of the viewing area.
The powerful cold front moves through Sunday, bringing breezy conditions and falling temperatures. Highs Sunday will likely be reached around noon, and then fall throughout the afternoon. There will likely be some snow by late afternoon, and especially during the evening.
The strong Canadian high pressure system will bring in the cold air to Iowa Monday and Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the lower 20s both days, with overnight lows Monday in the single digits to lower teens.
The high temperatures Monday will likely break record low maximum temperatures for November 11th. It’s the coldest in 33 years for Waterloo, Dubuque and Cedar RApids. Iowa City’s record low maximum came with the cold just last year. We will also be near record cold for Tuesday morning low temperatures.
