The weather is taking a sharp turn for the weekend… National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Zogg says the sunshine and 70-degree temps we’ve been enjoying this past week have gave way to 40-degree highs and cold, blustery winds. Zogg says it’s not winter yet by any means, but summer’s certainly behind us. A few flurries are possible through Saturday morning across Iowa, especially in the northeast portion of the state. Iowa has seen many October snows, but the average date of the first snowfall in the state is around November 10th. The forecast calls for slightly warmer temperatures next week, with highs returning to the 60s and 70s by Wednesday.
