TRACKING: Cold temperatures

The rivers remain high in many locations. This map shows the locations under a flooding warning. The dots show locations already flooding and the severity. CLICK HERE for the latest river stages and forecasts for locations under a flood warning.

The sky will be clear for several hours tonight allowing temperatures to drop into the upper 20s and low 30s…frost is likely. This will be the end of the growing season. If you want some plants to make it through the night, due to the cold, you should cover them or move them into a shed or garage.

The sky is mostly cloudy Friday with a slight chance of a light shower from Iowa City south. Highs only warm into the low to mid 40s. Normal highs this time of year are in the mid 60s.

The temperatures are higher Saturday, but so is the wind. A gusty south wind will push highs into the low to mid 50s. Sunday and Monday are chilly again with highs in the low 40s and lows in the upper 20s to low 30s. It feels more like November than October. Dry weather continues through at least the middle of next week.
