across Iowa with lighter northwest winds and highs ranging from the 
mid 20s across the north where snow remained, to the mid and upper 
30s across the south. Temperatures had not moved much off of daytime 
highs as of early this evening, but over western and northwest Iowa 
winds had become calm to even southerly in a few cases.

Interstate 80. Unfortunately those warmer temperatures will be put on
