Iowa forecast says bitter cold will follow snow

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Parts of Iowa are likely to experience blizzard conditions Sunday before the entire state plunges into bitter cold on Monday.

The National Weather Service says northeast Iowa received 1-to-3-inches of snow Sunday morning. And much of the state could see another inch or two Sunday afternoon and evening.

The snow itself isn't significant, but forecasters warn that strong winds expected to arrive Sunday afternoon will blow the snow around and make travel dangerous.

Then temperatures will fall Sunday night. Wind chills between 25 degrees below zero and 40 degrees below zero are expected Monday morning with the coldest weather in northern Iowa.

The cold will shock many Iowa residents. In Des Moines, the temperature was 40 Sunday morning. A day later, wind chills of 30 degrees below zero are expected.
