bitter cold air has been locked over iowa since saturday and we're not going to break that pattern for a couple more days. today it's going to be a partly cloudy day with a light wind and a high near 9 degrees. overnight tonight we're going to see the cloud cover increase and we'll stay dry as lows fall near 1 degree. tuesday we are looking at another cold day with snow possible. we will start seeing snow in the morning falling in western iowa and work through central and southern iowa through the day. accumulations will likely be around 2 to 3 inches here in the metro, so likely not a huge snowfall amount but timing will probably impact the morning and evening commutes. after that we're going to warm back into the mid 20s through friday. thursday we may see a bit of snow in the morning in southern iowa but at the moment it looks like we'll see low accumulations. temperatures finally look to warm back into the 30s by the weekend so let's just keep hoping they stick around towards next week! elias: let's get into the
