Temperatures will hold steady in the upper 20s to lower 30s overnight with areas of fog likely. Winds will be light out of the east around 3-8 mph with cloudy skies.
Anticipate on a slow morning commute Monday due to slippery and snow covered roads. Some areas could see a chance for freezing drizzle between 4-6am and then all snow after 6am. Light snow will continue through the midday and wrap up during the late afternoon, leading to another slow commute home. Snow accumulations will range from a dusting to 2" of snow with the higher totals further north and lower totals in far northeastern Iowa. Rochester and the much of the viewing area will receive anywhere from 1-2" of snow. Temperatures will be falling throughout the day as well, with highs in the lower 30s being reached early on Monday. Afternoon temperatures will mainly be in the teens to 20s.
Followed behind Monday's snow producing storm system is a blast of Arctic air that will effect the midweek. Tuesday and Wednesday will only manage high temperatures in the lower single digits with lows in the single digits to teens below zero. Winds chill reading during this time will be well into the teens to 20s below zero. Make sure to dress extra warm and limit the time you and your pets spend outdoors as frostbite can occur at a faster rate in this type of weather conditions.
Temperatures rebound quickly by the late week with highs in the mid 20s on Thursday and Friday with mostly cloudy skies and a slight chance for snow shower. Similar conditions are expected on Saturday with another dip in the temperatures possible on Sunday.
