Big Change

A front pushed through the area today with an abrupt change in temperatures this morning. We were in the 40s most of the night and then this morning the bottom fell out. Temperatures dropped fast and everything that was wet over night froze just as fast. Here is a look at the hour temperatures in Waterloo.

We also had a mixture of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow. Not a lot of anyone one time, but enough to make everything slippery. Here is a look at the snow reports across Iowa.

Here is another look at a map of snow reports.

 

The clouds cleared for a short time in the central part of the state. As the sun was setting this evening a few people were able to view sundogs. This photo was taken in Grundy County.
