In all of Iowa, the afternoon will be colder than the morning

Light snow has been moving through southeast Iowa towards the Mississippi since early morning. That snow will likely linger after sunrise in places like Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, but shouldn’t affect the Des Moines subway. Interactive Radar | Weather Alerts As this system exits Iowa, another chunk of energy will pour into the state from the Northwest today. This will bring isolated snow showers towards the afternoon, but not much accumulation. More notably, a north-westerly breeze picks up, often blowing around 40 km/h and pushing temperatures from the 30’s into the 20’s. Wind chills fall into the teens. In the afternoon it will be colder than this morning. The cold wind will continue tonight before easing over the course of the day tomorrow.
