Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
522 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

Fog finally burned of for roughly the southern two thirds of the state
this afternoon, but remained through much of north-central and
northeast Iowa this afternoon. As you could imagine, that helped keep
temperatures from rising much above the upper 30s in those areas,
while the remainder of the state rose into the 40s and even a few low
50s. Temperatures as of early this evening remained within a couple
degrees of daytime highs in areas without fog, and more or less
stagnant in areas still under fog. Through the evening, the fog will
likely expand back south, covering portions of central and southern
Iowa once again tonight and overnight.

The rest of the weekend and early next week will be dry and mild with
temperatures primarily in the upper 30s to 40s. The next weather maker
will push through the region Tuesday night through Wednesday, bringing
periods of snow, rain snow mixes, and rain. Much of northern Iowa will
see snow, while areas through central and southern Iowa will see a
rain snow mix depending on the time of day. Winds behind the system
will be blustery out of the northwest, helping to drop highs back into
the 20s and lower 30s by Thursday and into next weekend. That also
means lows may dip down into the teens, but should remain out of the
single digits for the time being.
