It was a cold start this morning. The map below shows the low temperatures. Those numbers are a stark contrast to Saturday afternoon highs in the 70s.
A few flurries fell from the clouds we have this afternoon. The clouds will clear this evening and the wind will diminish as well. The low temperatures tonight will be cold. Mid teens are expected for most locations with the usual colder spots down near 10 degrees. The last time we had the temperatures this low was early March. By the way, that was the last time we had accumulating snow as well.
The weather will remain quiet for the next seven days. There will be varied amounts of cloud cover from day to day but no precipitation. After the cold start to Tuesday morning, the highs and lows will be close to normal for this time of year.
Here is the 8-14 day outlook (Nov 20-26) from the Climate Prediction Center. Iowa is forecast to have above normal temperatures and near to below normal precipitation.
