Bitterly cold air invades Iowa

During the next two days,  Iowa will see some of the coldest temperatures it has faced in nearly two years with highs in central Iowa only climbing into the teens and lows reaching near zero. North Iowa has been dealing with temperatures that are 5 to 10-below with wind chills of 25 to 35 below.

Farmers are reminded to make sure that cattle have access to water and have shelter from the wind.
