COLD. That sums up the weather on Friday in KELOLAND. Temperatures have fallen into the teens below zero in many areas and wind chills remain at -15 to -35. Sunny skies will cover much of the region under strong high pressure.
Very cold air will continue into the weekend. Lows on Saturday morning will be in the teens and 20s below zero, threatening some records. Highs again will be very cold in the single digits above zero.
The next story will be developing snow late Saturday night into Sunday. Amounts of one to three inches are looking more likely, with the heaviest totals falling in northwest Iowa. This snow should end Sunday night.
We will also be watching the potential for stronger NW winds either late Monday or Tuesday. There is still time to watch this to evaluate how much wind we will see, but there could be blowing snow event here with this “clipper” coming in from Canada.
