Posted: 07 Dec 2011 05:56 AM

Low temperatures have been quite cold for this time of year with near record low values over northwestern Iowa thanks to a new snowfall and clear skies. The featured map presents an analysis of low temperatures for Tuesday showing a 40+ degree gradient over Iowa. Southeastern Iowa is snow free and had the warm comfort of clouds overhead which help to trap in the earth's heat during the nighttime. The forecast has some hope for slightly above freezing temperatures this weekend.

Good = 24
Bad = 5
