A few roads across eastern Iowa are still a little icy today and will likely remain icy at least until tomorrow. Light flurries have also put a dusting of snow down in spots but the snow is so light and fluffy that it moves easily and shouldn't cause many issues other than a few isolated slick spots. Otherwise, it has been a dreary morning with the cloud cover but the clouds will start to thin out and decrease from northeast to southwest. Some sunshine may help to improve the roads in spots.
Highs will still remain below average in the mid to upper teens (20 for Dubuque). With partly cloudy skies tonight and a light and variable wind, we should see our lows dropping down to about 5 degrees below zero with wind chills as cold as about 15 below.
After the chilly start Tuesday morning we will be on a warming trend. Mostly sunny skies and a wind shift from the south will bring highs back to the low 20's Tuesday. We continue to warm to the mid 30's by Wednesday as the chance for snow moves in.
Temperatures will remain generally steady from Wednesday through Saturday, ranging from about 28 to 34 degrees. Therefore, snow will turn to a wintry mix for Wednesday afternoon before switching back to mostly snow for Wednesday night. Again on Thursday, another surge of a wintry mix moves in, turning over to snow into Friday.
We could see a few inches of accumulation depending on a narrow window of temperatures slightly above and below freezing. We will start to get a good idea of what we are looking at tomorrow. But just keep in mind that travel could be hampered from Wednesday through Friday.
