Clouds increase tonight as a weak area of low pressure tracks southeast across western Iowa. Light snow is possible late tonight (after midnight). Light snow chances continue through the day with light accumulation (trace-2” w/isolated 3” amounts west of Waterloo). Light snow will make the roads slick so use caution when traveling Wednesday. The wind Wednesday will be from the NE at 10-15 mph.

Thanksgiving will be cold, but at least dry.

Friday morning temperatures will start in the teens and remain dry as many head out early to go shopping.
