The weather forecast is calling for much cooler conditions early next week and the potential for the first measurable snow of the season. National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Cogil says a cold front is expected to push through the state later in the day on Sunday, bring a chance of rain and snow.

“The snow is most likely across the northern half of the state and we could light to moderate accumulations Monday into Monday night,” Cogil says. The weekend forecast is calling for mostly sunny conditions with highs in the 40s across northern Iowa and possibly the 50s in the south. High temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will likely remain in the 30s, with overnight lows in the teens.
