Arctic chill lasts the rest of the week

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - Wind chill advisories are once again in place Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Actual temperatures will fall to the neighborhood of -10, and wind chills will be in the -15 to -30 range. Frostbite can happen in as little as 30 minutes under those conditions.

Temperatures will climb back into the single digits above zero Thursday afternoon, although wind chills will stay at -5 to -10.

Scattered flurries are possible Thursday night as very weak weather system slides past Iowa. No accumulation is expected from that.

The cold weather lasts through Saturday, but then temperatures will keep going up into Sunday. At this time, temperatures will be warm enough to support a wintry mix on Sunday before switching back to snow Monday. There are still questions on how this system will evolve, so it’s far too early to know anything about exact accumulations. Some parts of the area will probably have enough to shovel, but that does not necessarily mean a large amount of snow!
