The wind will stay strong through the evening. A Wind Advisory is in place for Central and Southwest Iowa until 10 PM. Wind speeds of 20 to 35 mph will be common. Gusts will be as high as 40 mph at times.
Late tonight, light snow will be possible. It will be less than a half inch with a trace in most locations. Much of it will melt as it falls.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 10 PM until 4 AM for far southern Iowa. Only three counties are included: Wayne, Appanoose and Davis. Rain will develop first tonight in far southern Iowa. As the air temperature drops below zero, the rain will transition to snow. Blowing of snow will lead to reduced visibilities in that part of the state.
Wednesday will be dry but colder with highs only in the mid 30s. There will be a quick warm up on Thursday with temperatures back to the upper 50s.
