30 to 40 Degrees Colder Today, Still Dry

Good Sunday Morning bloggers,

Well, reality has struck this morning, with temperatures in the 20s and wind chills around 10°.  This is following a Saturday where highs were in the 60s!  See MAP #1.

MAP #1: HIGHS SATURDAY

GREAT WETAHER SATURSDAY!

GREAT WEATHER SATURSDAY!

A first cold front moved through Saturday night.  A second cold front will move through this evening, taking our temperatures down another level.  Lows will be in the single digits Monday morning with wind chills around 0°.  During wind gusts wind chills may fall to -10°.   Even though we will have dropped about 60 degrees from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning, it is a dry transition with only a few flurries and very light snow tracking across Iowa.  Usually with this kind of weather change there is a storm, but not this time.  The drought continues.  Hopefully, we will have some kind of a storm January 28-30.  If we could get .50″ to 1″ of liquid that would be great, but it will probably be under .50″, like all of the others.  We will have more on this the next several days.

See the maps below for the sequence of events later today into Monday.
