That 3-4" of snow we had Sunday night will be sticking around for awhile as more cold air keeps pouring in from Canada thanks to a persistent NW jet stream flow. This pattern will bring us some "Clipper" systems out of Canada.
The first of these will swing to our north tonight, but we will be mostly clear early with some clouds later with most of the snow showers staying over northern Iowa. It should exit Tuesday morning leaving us with partly cloudy sky and temperatures in the 20s.
The next system is scheduled to come over mainly northern Iowa Wednesday night with some light snow possible. Right now it looks like an inch or maybe two in some areas mainly north of Hwy 30 will be possible. The winds will be pick up with both of these clippers, but this second one will have some more arctic air behind it for Wednesday. We can expect more wind chills in the -0s for most of the day.
There will be some improvement Thursday and Friday as we warm temps closer to our seasonal averages. Friday is looking like our mildest day with some more cold possible by Sunday.
Have a good night!
