The chill is back, and so is snow on Sunday

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - The arctic cold front that blasted through Thursday morning brought in cold weather, and it’s staying put for several days. Low temperatures most nights through the middle of next week will be near or below zero. Daytime highs are going to generally be teens and single digits.

An Alberta Clipper will move across the Upper Midwest Sunday afternoon through Sunday night. Expectations on Friday are that it’ll drop a coating up to two inches across our area, with the potential for more than two inches in the northeastern corner of Iowa. The general idea is snowfall amounts will be lowest from about Oskaloosa to Mount Pleasant and gradually increase as you go northeast.

Winds will pick up Sunday night and remain gusty from the northwest on Monday. That’ll cause areas of blowing snow, particularly where at least an inch of snow fell. It’ll also cause temperatures to sink through the single digits during the day.
