Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
540 PM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

Another unseasonably warm afternoon was experienced across the state
of Iowa today. Several daily record highs were tied or broke today as
temperatures rose into the upper 50s to low 70s under mostly sunny
skies. Wednesday will be even a few degrees warmer with additional
record highs likely, although this will mark the end of the recent
streak of very warm February weather as cooler temperatures start to
filter in on Thursday.

Attention will then turn to the potential for winter weather on
Friday and Friday night. The highest threat for moderate to heavy snow
and blowing snow will be in northwest Iowa where a Winter Storm Watch
has been issued. Further to the south and east precipitation will
initially start as rain due to above freezing temperatures, then
gradually change to snow late Friday and into Friday night as strong
northwesterly winds usher in colder air.
