Colder for a day, then a warm-up

We did have some rain and snow showers in the area overnight.  The northern counties saw mainly light snow, while the southern counties had rain for awhile… and then it changed to snow as temperatures dropped.  There was even a heavier band that formed over Clinton Co.  The ground was a bit too warm to see a great deal of accumulation, but the National Weather Service office in Wilmington did pick up some measurable snowfall–right around two-tenths of an inch.  Here is what Live Doppler 2X looked like as the snowband intensified:

Now the precip has moved east of the area, but the clouds remain, for now.  These, too, will break up as the morning goes on as high pressure builds in.  But this is a COLD high… check out temperatures:

Single-digits in eastern Iowa–eeek!  Our highs will be more than 10-degrees colder than  we were yesterday (we’ll make it to 37 this afternoon).  The good news is that the cold is short-lived.  We will warm a bit each day as we head towards the end of the week, and by Friday afternoon we’ll be back up near 50-degrees.  The weekend looks even milder, with mid-to-upper 50s and… yes… even 60-degrees would be possible next week.  Precipitation chances remain fairly low through this time, too.  Right now it looks like a slight chance of showers late Friday, but a better shot would come on Sunday.  We will keep you posted!

Have a great day!
