Weather Forecasts

Fog is the big story for your Monday! The visibility is low and slick spots are possible.

Dense fog has once again developed across the state, which means visibility has dropped to lower than one mile in most spots. A Dense Fog Advisory is in place for most of the state until 11:00 a.m. Monday. Since temperatures are below freezing, slick spots may develop as a result of this fog. Be sure to plan ahead for the morning commute.

The fog will begin to mix out by the early afternoon, but the overcast sky will hold steady once again today. Temperatures will only climb to the low 30s for central Iowa. The clouds will stick around overnight and more fog will be possible Tuesday morning as temperatures return to the mid 20s.

Clouds will stick around through most of the upcoming week, with highs ranging from the upper 20s to the lower 30s. This stagnant weather pattern could lead to periods of fog and light snow, but no significant snow events are expected over the next week. However, we are likely to see some light snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, especially across southwestern Iowa. Those areas in southwest Iowa could receive up to 1″ of snow by mid-morning Wednesday. Central Iowa will likely see less than an inch of snow, if any accumulation occurs at all.

Another quick system may bring us a shot at light snow by Friday, but that does not appear to be a significant event, either. Sunshine will be hard to come by until potentially next weekend, when temperatures could actually climb into the 40s! Perhaps we can finally start melting some of the snow?!

Have a good day!
