Sheldon, Iowa — Well, we appear to have climbed out of the deep freeze and are back to more normal temperatures for this time of year.

We talked with weather technician Tim Masters with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, and he tells us what’s on tap for the next few days.

Normal highs for late February in Sheldon are in the mid 30’s, reaching the upper 30’s by the end of the month. This coming Tuesday looks like it might be the warmest for the next week with a high that day near 43.

We asked Masters what caused the arctic air and why it’s warmer now.

The six-to-ten-day forecast is calling for normal temperatures and normal precipitation. Unfortunately, the further out forecasters attempt to predict the weather, the less accurate the forecast. So beyond that, we’ll just have to wait and see, says Masters.
