Today's Forecast

Today is another gloomy day, but at least it will be warmer thanks to some stronger southerly winds. Southerly winds of 15-25 mph will push our temps into the low and mid 40s this afternoon for most areas. And they stay strong tonight and will keep us much milder with lows not dropping out of the 40s in the Metro. This means that any precipitation that falls will not be freezing through Monday morning. There could be a few areas of light rain or drizzle today, but tonight more significant rain will start moving in from the west, and it should last well into Monday afternoon. Temps will be in the mid 40s most of Monday, but a cold front will send them below freezing late afternoon, so we may see some rain change over into a rain/snow mix. It's possible we could see light snow in far northern Iowa Monday afternoon and evening, but accumulation chances look slim to none. Tuesday will be colder with flurries possible. Christmas eve and day will both be cold with only flurries possible, so holiday travel should not be a large issue.
