It's the winter that doesn't seem to want to end, and it will continue over the next couple days.  Tonight, we will have a mostly cloudy to mostly clear sky, with the wind dying down between 5-10 mph out of the northwest.  Low temperatures will be in the lower to middle 20s.

Tuesday, we will see plenty of sunshine, which will be a nice site to see.  Temperatures will still be well below average, in the lower 40s north, to upper 40s across the south.  The wind will be variable 5-15 mph.

Our next storm system will be a quick mover, but bring winter impacts to eastern Iowa Tuesday night and Wednesday, and it will be windy.  A chance for a wintry mix tracks in late Tuesday night, especially across our northern counties.  Freezing rain and sleet will be possible, switching over to snow during the day on Wednesday.  Areas south of Highway 20 may have a little bit of rain mixing in as well, but it will be mostly snow across northern Iowa.  A few inches of snow are possible north of Highway 20, along with a light glaze of ice.

That storm will track out Wednesday night, leaving us with quiet weather for the remainder of the work week.  Thursday we will have temperatures in the middle 40s, with upper 40s and lower 50s possible Friday.  Middle and upper 50s are possible this weekend, with 60 possible next week.

Stay tuned for updates.
