We have a large area of freezing fog across west and central Iowa this morning and we should see a lot of that dissipate as we go deeper into the morning. I do want to make note that I do believe some of us do not escape the fog today mostly due to snowpack at the surface. A second round of freezing fog is expected to develop tonight through Wednesday AM and I have confidence that this will be a state-wide fog event. I would watch for slick spots where fog can condense out onto the surface of the road tonight through Wednesday morning. Then a cold front will slide through on Thursday bringing some gusty winds and light to moderate snow accumulation. A second minor wave of snow can follow Saturday into Sunday which may offer up some light snow accumulation in the trace-1″ range but that will be it with this one. In addition to the storm system…extreme cold will follow over the weekend into a good portion of next week with extremely cold wind chill values.
