ICE AND THEN NICE....

Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon were two different worlds. The day started with a little clipper moving through that produced sleet and freezing rain. This led to a mess on some of the roads, particularly Highway 151 in Dubuque. Here's a look at the ice in Cedar Rapids via Mike Graber:


Then.... about 6/7 hours later this is what it looked like outside (photo also from Mike Graber):

And check out that temperature! We went from starting off in the 20s with ice and finished with sunshine and temperatures in the 50s.

Now Sunday won't be quite as nice because of some cooler air and wind in the afternoon:

But we bounce right back up to the 50s on Monday:

In face through the week temperatures are going to remain near and above normal. We have a ridge in the upper levels of the atmosphere that'll keep temps on the mild side:

The flow will also be out of the northwest which will also keep things dry... as it's been over the last several weeks. Little to no precipitation is expected through Friday:

We'll be keeping an eye on a storm system and colder air moving in sometime next weekend that could produce rain, snow, and precipitation in between:


A little too soon for details on that and something to watch for timing and location!


A MESSAGE FROM TERRY...

Dear friends of the site, I still need some help. My 2021 fund raiser to keep TSwails.com going is about 17 people short of reaching my goal of covering my operating expenses. My $12 dollar asking fee is the cost of a pizza or a dozen donuts. Those are gone in a day, TSwails.com is here for you all year long. It's a heck of a value and all I'm asking is that if you enjoy the site and see value in it, that you please consider a voluntary subscription. I'm asking $12.00 dollars a year. That's $1 dollar a month or 3 cents a blog if you consider the fact there were 450 posts issued over the past year. The site requires a significant commitment of time and resources, every donation, whatever the size is deeply appreciated. I just need a little help to cover the expenses. If in any way you are unsatisfied with the content of TSwails, you can take advantage of my unconditional refund. Click on the link below if you can help the cause or need additional information. I thank you for your support and consideration. Terry
