A taste of snow, with bitter cold coming next week

A round of light snow moved across northern Iowa late Tuesday night, into Wednesday and through Wednesday afternoon, making driving and walking conditions a little slick throughout the area. Visibility was reduced to under one mile in some places. Charles City was only expected to get about a half-inch of snow before the system departed Wednesday night, although north of Floyd County, Riceville and Decorah received between 3-4 inches and nearly six inches of snow was reported in northern Winneshiek County.
No hazardous weather is expected through the rest of this week. Temperatures dipped to as low as 12 degrees Wednesday night, and are expected to be as low as 10 degrees in Charles City on Thursday night.
Daytime highs are predicted to get back up above freezing on Friday, and up above 40 degrees on Saturday. There is a slight chance of rain or snow through the weekend, then on Veterans Day, temperatures are expected to plummet into the single digits. The forecast is for an overnight low of six degrees on Monday night, and more of the same on Tuesday night. Daytime highs on Monday and Tuesday are expected to be in the low 20s.
