Snow and bitterly cold temperatures are back to southeast Iowa. After a brief break at the start of last weekend, temperatures plunged back into single digits and in some cases sub-zero temperatures on Sunday and Monday.
Most of eastern Iowa to the north of Washington County was in a wind-chill warning yesterday. On Monday morning, the Washington Municipal Airport recorded wind chills as low as 22 below. The National Weather service indicates that temperatures in the upper Midwest are around 15 to 25 degrees below average. The cold weather will be moving to the east. By Sunday, Washington could have temperatures back to near 40 for a high as soon as Sunday. But that’s not before several more chances of snow in the coming days.
