Local 5 Weather Forecast

Well, northern and eastern Iowa got their fair share of snow overnight, which was expected.

However, southern Iowa is getting snow now-- something that didn't appear likely! There's been some extra "forcing" in the atmosphere which kept the snow in Iowa instead of over parts of Missouri, like originally expected.

Some parts of southern Iowa will receive 1-3" of snow before everything wraps up later this evening.

Otherwise, it has been cold and windy with temperatures in the teens and wind chills in the 10s. We're looking for a frigid night as lows drop into the low and mid teens.

If you Thanksgiving travel plans next week, you will likely be in good shape! Dry weather is in the forecast until possibly some rain on Black Friday. Highs go from the low 40s on Monday and Tuesday to the 50s on Wednesday and Thanksgiving. Looks like things will generally turn dreary and cool again by next weekend.

Have a good evening!
