The sky will remain cloudy tonight with no wind and temperatures dropping into the teens by Friday morning. The sky will be mostly cloudy to cloudy through Thursday next week. A few rays of sunshine are possible Friday and Saturday.

I am tracking a larger storm forecast to push across Iowa Monday with rain/snow. The storm strengthens as it moves away from Iowa. Here is the WPC forecast position of the low.
A few light snow showers are possible Tuesday as temperatures drop behind the low. Flurries may linger into Wednesday. A gusty northwest wind is expected Tuesday and Wednesday. Cold air, with highs in the 20s, return Wednesday and will continue for the rest of the year.
