      Updated Friday, February 23, 2018

      Looking ahead…today will not be that bad. We see sunshine this afternoon. Temperatures warm to above normal levels today in the low 30s to near 40. Winds should not be too much of an issue today. Tonight, clouds track in and precipitation won’t be too far behind. Overnight lows cool to the mid-teens to mid-20s. 

      Wintry mix tracks into eastern Iowa from south to north. Areas of freezing rain may track through along with a rain/snow mix. Wintry mix could change over to rain as temperatures warm tomorrow. Due to the mixing, snow amounts will be light for Saturday. Accumulations will mainly be less than one inch and isolated higher amounts are possible in our northern counties. Again, mixing of rain or freezing rain will keep snow totals on the low end for this system. Highs Saturday warm to the mid-30s to low 40s (which also keeps snow to a minimum). Breezy winds are expected Saturday.

      Even stronger winds develop for Sunday. Dry conditions begin Sunday and continue through midweek.
