Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
526 PM CST Fri Nov 24 2017

Black Friday 2017 turned out to be warm but windy for most of Iowa.
This afternoon temperatures across the state reached the mid to upper
60s, with southern portions of Iowa hitting the 70 degree mark.
Several observation stations today saw record breaking high
temperatures. A cold front has been passing through the state this
afternoon, but has not drastically reduced temperatures. It has
however been the source for the strong winds, which started out
westerly this morning and slowly shifted northwesterly at 25 to 30
miles per hour, with several wind gusts over 40 miles per hour. As the
of the early evening, Doppler radar did indicate a band of light
showers in northern Iowa along the cold front, with a few stations
reporting light rain. Central and southern Iowa have remained dry.

Throughout the rest of the Midwest and Great Plains, unseasonably warm
temperatures and gusty winds were also the main story.

For this evening, temperatures will drop into the mid 30s overnight.
The winds will be a little more subtle this evening at 10 to 15 miles
per hour. Going into the weekend, conditions will remain mostly dry
but there will still be some gusty winds.
