LOCAL 5 FORECAST: Mild Monday, windy Wednesday, snow in between!

Monday may very well be the nicest day for the next week to ten days with a high near 50 and lots of sun! Snow will be probable in northwestern Iowa on Tuesday.

Well we were about 8-10 degrees cooler than yesterday but it wasn't half bad out there today... Other than the wind! Get used to saying that this week because we're going to have some windy days!

After a pleasant (but gusty) Monday with highs near 50°, the next system will move through on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Snow will start in far northwestern Iowa on Tuesday morning and gradually sink southeastward. Amounts will range between 2-5 inches in NW Iowa, but central Iowa won't see much. We may see a dusting in Des Moines Tuesday evening, but that's about it.

Much colder air will move in Tuesday night into Wednesday, as highs stay in the 20s and wind chills will be stuck in the teens throughout the day on Wednesday.

There will be a gradual warmup by Friday, but I don't think we'll hit 50°. It'll be close!

Next weekend looks cooler, with highs around 40, and the wind finally calming down.

The next major system looks likely next Monday into Tuesday. We'll keep an eye on that one!

Have a good week!
