Warm weather will round out the weekend before big changes arrive

Colder air will move back in for the start of the week.

If you liked Saturday, you'll love Sunday, too! 

Clouds will begin to steadily fill in on Sunday, but we will still see a good amount of sunshine. It will still be another very nice day with highs once again in the 50s. Parts of southern Iowa may see temperatures close to 60.

A developing low pressure to our south may bring precipitation to southern and southeastern Iowa on Monday. This will likely start as rain before transitioning to a sloppy wintry mix. Although there could be some icy spots, minimal impacts are expected Monday since temperatures will still be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Chances are this mix will largely avoid the Des Moine metro.

A second low pressure system is expected to bring snow to central and eastern Iowa on Tuesday and Tuesday night. This could bring substantial accumulation to some parts of our state, but nailing down specific totals and locations is still a bit tricky. Nevertheless, anyone along and east of I-35 should be prepared for accumulating snow that could cause travel impacts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Details are still limited, of course, but we'll iron them out over the next several days! 

Temperatures will take a step back to reality next week with highs mainly in the 20s and 30s to round out February. 

Have a good weekend!
