Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid 40s across the south with the upper 30s across the north. However, there is a chance for rain, sleet, and snow starting late tomorrow afternoon and into the evening hours.

Precipitation will begin in western Iowa after 4pm to 5pm. Initially, this precipitation will fall as rain ahead of this front, then will transition to sleet, then to all snow after the front passes through.

This band will then be draped across central and southwestern Iowa after 9pm Friday.  This line will continue to track off to the southeast. Rain will being in southeastern Iowa after 9pm and will then transition to snow after midnight. This system will then push out of the state by early Saturday morning. After all said and done, snow accumulations will be light, mainly around an inch to an inch and a half, with some isolated 2 inch reports.


After the front passes through, Saturday will be slightly cooler before waring back up to average on Sunday. Monday is still looking to be marvelous, so if you can get through Friday night and Saturday, warmer weather is still ahead!
