“Springlike” weather is not expected in Eastern Iowa anytime soon, according to the National Weather Service.
On Tuesday, Feb. 12, snow is expected mainly before 2 p.m. The temperature will continue falling to around 23 degrees by 5 p.m. with a northwest wind at 20 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph.
At night there will be a chance of flurries before 9 p.m. and patchy blowing snow before midnight.
A low temperature of around 6 degrees is expected with wind chill as low as -10.
The cold temperatures will continue throughout the week, with a slight break on Thursday when the temperature is expected to be above freezing with a high of around 35 degrees.
