WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1047 AM CST SUN DEC 28 2014

TEMPERATURES OVERNIGHT WERE QUITE COLD ACROSS THE STATE THANKS IN
PART TO CLEAR SKIES AND THE LACK OF INSULATING CLOUD COVER. LOWS
ACROSS THE NORTHERN THIRD OF THE STATE...ESPECIALLY THE
NORTHWEST...WERE IN THE SINGLE DIGITS. THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE
SAW LOWS IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS AND UP TO THE TEENS...EXCEPT THE
SOUTHEAST WHERE LOWS WERE AS HIGH AS THE LOW 20S. WINDS WERE CALM
TO LIGHT OVERNIGHT AND HAVE CONTINUED THROUGH THE MORNING. AS OF
LATE THIS MORNING TEMPERATURES HAD ONLY RISEN A COUPLE DEGREES IN
THE SNOW COVERED AREAS OF NORTHWEST AND NORTH CENTRAL IOWA INTO
THE LOW TEENS...WHILE MUCH OF THE REST OF THE STATE HAD RISEN TO
THE LOW TO UPPER 20S.

SKIES WILL BEGIN TO CLOUD OVER LATER TODAY AND A CHANCE FOR LIGHT
SNOW WILL PASS THROUGH THE WESTERN HALF OF THE STATE. AS MUCH AS
AN INCH OF SNOW MAY FALL...BUT MOST PLACES WILL SEE A DUSTING TO A
HALF INCH. ISOLATED AREAS OF WESTERN IOWA MAY RECEIVE A BIT MORE
THAN AN INCH. ALONG WITH THE RETURNING CLOUD COVER AND CHANCES FOR
LIGHT SNOW...WINDS WILL BEGIN TO PICK UP OUT OF THE NORTHEAST AND
SHIFT TOWARDS THE NORTH AND NORTHWEST OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS. AS A RESULT...HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE BELOW FREEZING FOR
ALL BUT SOUTHEAST IOWA MONDAY BEFORE GIVING WAY TO VERY COLD HIGH
TEMPERATURES TUESDAY. TEMPERATURES TUESDAY WILL FALL MOST OF THE
DAY RESULTING IN DAY TIME HIGHS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS FOR THE
NORTHWEST HALF OF THE STATE AND HIGHS WELL BELOW 20 FOR MOST OF
THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE. TEMPERATURES WILL REBOUND A BIT BY
THURSDAY WITH HIGHS FORECASTED IN THE 20S AND SOME 30S BY FRIDAY.

ASIDE FROM OVERNIGHT TONIGHT...THE NEXT SIGNIFICANT CHANCE FOR
PRECIPITATION...AND IN THIS CASE SNOW...LOOKS TO MOVE THROUGH
FRIDAY NIGHT AND INTO SATURDAY.
