      • 29°

      Updated Monday, February 19, 2018

      There is a wide range of weather across eastern Iowa tonight and into Tuesday morning.

      Northwest of a line from Tama to Elkader tonight and Tuesday:
      Freezing rain will develop after midnight. The freezing rain tapers off around 9 AM Tuesday. Ice accumulation will be 0.10-0.25”. Use caution walking and driving Tuesday morning due to the ice. Highs Tuesday remain below freezing so ice will not melt much.

      Southeast of a line from Tama to Elkader tonight and Tuesday:
      Areas of dense fog is expected through the night and into Tuesday morning. Rain becomes widespread after midnight. Temperatures are in the mid 30s, so no freezing rain is expected. Fog thins Tuesday morning with more rain possible until early afternoon. Highs are near 40 degrees.

      For all of eastern Iowa...
      Tuesday night the wind increases from the northwest at 10-20 mph under a mostly cloudy sky. The sun comes back out Wednesday with highs in the 20s.

      We are tracking some more active weather for Thursday through Saturday with scattered rain/snow chances each day.
