We had rainbows after storms moved through the state today. Then we will be on the way to much colder air tonight and tomorrow. There is a chance for light snow in the metro tomorrow morning.
It is going to be cold too! This evening the temperature fell from 50 degrees at 5:00 PM to 37 degrees at 6:00 PM.
Heavier snow is expected in northern Iowa. If you are planning to drive north tomorrow...check out the latest road conditions by calling 511. That number will be handy for checking all roads in Iowa and surrounding states.
The high tomorrow will come around midnight. We should be at 30 degrees by then and we will also have gusty northwest wind to face through the day. Wind chills will be in the single digits by Tuesday night.
