(KHBT) — Following an early month cold spell, today (Tuesday) and Wednesday should provide some temporary relief for our listeners.

Expected highs  in the Humboldt-Dakota City area for today and Wednesday are in the low-to-mid 40’s. That’s quite the significant change from the 25-30 below zero temps that plagued central Iowa in the early part of January and end of December.

The respite, however should not be here long. The National Weather Service is predicting patchy blowing snow, with rain and sleet for Wednesday night.

Thursday sees blowing snow and windy conditions producing hazardous travel conditions. Between Wednesday and Thursday most of the listening area can expect anywhere from one to two inches of snow with rain, sleet and ice also expected.

Temps could be as low as -7 by Thursday evening.
