TRACKING: A brief “warm up” before bitter cold temperatures

It’s a frosty start to your Friday with temperatures in the single digits and teens. If you’re vehicle was not in a garage last night, take a few extra minutes to defrost this morning.

Today will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with temperatures warming up into the lower to middle 30s. High pressure moves to our east, bringing in a breezy south wind 10-20 mph. This will make it feel a little colder with wind chills in the 20s.

Temperatures will not be as cold tonight as we keep a south/southwesterly wind. Lows will be in the 20s.

An area of low pressure tracks to our north Saturday, giving eastern Iowa a boost in temperatures. Highs will be in the lower 40s to lower 50s from north to south and the sky will be partly cloudy. The arctic front moves in Sunday.

Temperatures will likely warm into the 30s to near 40° early in the day, with steady or falling temperatures as the front moves through during the afternoon. It will become breezy as well. Behind the front, there is the potential for light snow showers.

Light snow will linger into Sunday night and Monday morning. There’s still a little difference in timing and how widespread the light snow will be, so be sure to stay up to date with future forecasts. Minor accumlation is possible.

Temperautres will be in the 20s Monday and Tuesday, with overnight lows in the single digits and teens. Record cold highs will likely be broken Monday.
