Dangerously cold wind chills hit eastern Iowa


WATERLOO (KWWL) - As one Alberta Clipper moves away...another will quickly follow. Behind the first one, cold temperatures and winds at 10-20 mph this morning will push wind chills in the 20s below zero. Wind chills this cold could cause frostbite in 30 minutes to exposed skin. The wind will diminish through the morning as high pressure moves overhead.

High pressure will provide us with plenty of sunshine most of today. Clouds will increase this evening as the next Alberta Clipper moves closer. The storm track of this low will be pretty close to the last low track.
Storm Track

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY this evening until tomorrow morning.
Snow will begin after 8 or 9 PM tonight and continue through the night ending around 8-10 AM tomorrow. Snow totals area wide will be similar to the last storm.

Snow Forecast: 2-5 area wide. After the snow ends tomorrow morning the wind will increase once again from the north at 15-30 mph. Blowing snow will be possible due to the new fluffy snow from overnight. A large area of high pressure will bring bitterly cold temperatures to the Midwest for about 48 hours. Wednesay night the wind will be light and the sky will be clear over new snow...this is a good combination for temperatures to fall well below zero.  Morning lows on Thursday will be around 10 below zero with highs only warming from five below to zero. It gets even colder Thursday night as temperatures drop to -15 to -20 by Friday morning. A slow warm up can be expected through the weekend.
