Cold start to Thursday, tracking next system for weekend

Clearing skies tonight will allow some cold air to settle in for the overnight hours. Air temperatures will drop to the low single-digits (maybe below zero for some!) and wind chills around 10 degrees below zero. Bundle up as you head out the door tomorrow morning!

We are tracking our next system headed for us this coming weekend. Low pressure will start out on the west coast, dip south near Texas where it will pick up some extra moisture, then mark eastward through the central US.

Warm temperatures will make this a messy system, bringing rain, snow, and mixing through south and central Iowa. The good news is that the majority of that mess will be staying to the south and out of our region. Some light snow from the edge of the system will likely move through southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa Saturday evening but impacts will likely be minimal.

Temperatures will climb to end the week, in the upper 20s to low 30s. Warm conditions will likely stick around into early next week so overall a mild 7-day stretch ahead!
