Iowa Weather Report January 17th 2013

0

FEW MORE DAYS: The rest of the week is still looking reasonably warm across the state. Today will be cooler with a passing front bringing readings down into the 20s and lower 30s for highs, which is a little above seasonal norms for this time of year. Sunshine will be plentiful with a few passing clouds across the northern half of the state. Warmer tomorrow with readings well into the 40s and perhaps lower 50s before the front moves in during the day Saturday and brings much colder weather for next week.

BRRRRRR: Temperatures next week aren’t going to be what they have been lately. We might be lucky in some areas to get into the teens for highs Monday and perhaps Tuesday after nighttime lows will be below zero, perhaps double digits below zero in some areas. It will slowly warm during the week, but only make it back to seasonal levels by the end of next week in time for a storm system to come through that may bring us the next chance of some “widespread snow” to the area. We may see a few spits of snow Saturday and perhaps Sunday with the passing front but no real accumulations from that at this time. No real consensus at this time past next weekend so we’ll have more on that later on.

About Author

Jeff Wilcox serves as the Senior Forecaster at the Iowa Weather Network with primary focuses in long term weather operations and climatology. Weather has always fascinated me since I was young. My first memory of weather was back in 1988 during the Mother’s Day Tornado Outbreak in 1988. I can vaguely remember the cold snap the state experienced around Christmas Time in 1983, but was too young to remember that vividly. Growing up in Anamosa since moving there in 1981, I’ve experienced all the weather imaginable from bitter cold in early 1996 to hot and humid weather in 1995 and again in 2012, to floods in 1993, 1999, 2008 and 2013, Droughts in 1988 and 2012. After doing some other website work and other interests which included publishing a novel in 2007, I finally began the Iowa Weather Blog on June 27th 2008, right after the Flood of 2008. I worked it alone for hours on end giving out weather information that I thought was appropriate for those that wanted to know what was going on in their skies and what was to come. I continue to work on the blog along with the Iowa Weather Network which was created back in 2012 and continue to do so to this day.
