Defrosting will continue before the next system

Sunday marks the start of a warming trend. Meteorologist Trey Fulbright discusses when the highs may hit 50 degrees in your Storm Team 8 forecast.

Weather Summary: Warmer winds finally got us out of our cold snap today, taking temperatures to over 40C in much of Iowa. Those winds will drop to around 10 mph tonight and temperatures should only drop into the mid/high 20’s. Tomorrow, a weak boundary will slide across the state, pulling the winds back to the northwest. However, the highs will still be above 40°, which should make for the remaining snow on the ground. Tuesday and Wednesday bring the return of the 50s. The sky stays sunny until Thanksgiving. A system will sweep the Midwest from Thursday through early Friday. Details aren’t entirely clear yet, but currently it looks like there could be light rain on Turkey’s day itself, then perhaps some wet snowflakes/mixed precipitation in northern Iowa Thursday evening as cooler air moves in behind that system . This part of the forecast will be more accurate over the next day or two. After that we look at 40’s and 50’s with fairly dry weather into the weekend. Weather Outlook: Thaw to continue over the next few days Some moisture possible Thanksgiving Day Dry, seasonal weather otherwise Forecast: Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 25F. Wind from the SW at 10 to 15 mph.Monday: Mostly sunny. High 41F. Wind from the NW at 10 – 15 mph.Monday night: Partly cloudy skies. Low 24F. Wind light and variable.
