We've been enjoying above average temperatures here in the Hawkeye State this winter. After the blizzard like conditions, we experienced at the beginning of the year, we honestly deserve it.

Unfortunately, nothing this nice can stick around forever!

According to our weather partners at KCRG, parts of Eastern Iowa should expect weather conditions that more closely resemble winter than what we’ve been experiencing.

A “weak cold front” is set to move through the state this week.

So, it’s time to buckle up and get back to reality, Iowa!

These temperatures are described as “cooler, more seasonal” than what we’ve been feeling since the end of January.

Forecasters are predicting there’s a slight chance of an isolated flurry or sprinkle overnight on Tuesday, February 13th.

The National Weather Service Des Moines predicts that the northern parts of Iowa will see rain turn to snow accumulation on Valentine's Day evening. Southern regions of Iowa is set for mostly rain at this time.

It’s not until Thursday night when there will be a larger chance of some snow. 

Officials predict that there will likely be some very minor snow accumulations on the 15th.

Corey Thompson from KCRG predicts that this will be along and north of Highway 20.

That's not the last of the possible snow this week!

On Friday, February 16th some snow is expected to hit parts of Eastern Iowa which will lead into a chillier weekend. Luckily, that cold weather won't stick around for too long.

Next week (week of February 19th) temperatures are set to return to the above average conditions we've become used to this month.
