(Des Moines) Darren Snively with the National Weather Service in Des Moines says the freezing temperatures will be leaving southwest Iowa for the time being.
This follows two straight nights of temperatures in the upper twenties.
“Southwest Iowa should stay out of the freeze for tonight, but we are expecting freezing temperatures in northern and eastern Iowa.” stated Snively. “So southwest Iowa is in the clear for the next week or so.”
Atlantic, Red Oak and Shenandoah each recorded a low temperature of 28-degrees last night. The mercury slipped to 17-degrees in Estherville, the state's lowest reading. Mason City reported a low of 18-degrees.
