Iowa still saw some gusty conditions. Tonight will be quiet, and 
temperatures will struggle to drop below the 20s as cloud cover 
persists. Snow is possible tonight into early tomorrow morning, but 
little accumulation is expected.

While overcast skies will remain for most of Iowa tomorrow,
temperatures will be a little higher with highs in the mid 30s to
lower 40s. Other than some snow early Friday morning, the rest of the
day will be calm. Lows Friday night will again only drop slightly into 
the lower 20s to lower 30s. Saturday temperatures will be much warmer
pushing into the lower 50s across southern and central Iowa and into
the lower to mid 40s in northern Iowa. Sunday morning brings a chance
for rain and snow, but little to no accumulation is expected. Warmer 
temperatures persist into next week with highs in the low to upper 40s
and lows only in the lower to upper 20s with no chances for rain or
snow until mid to late next week.
