Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
515 PM CST Tue Jan 16 2018

Very cold air continues to have a firm grip over much of the region.
Temperatures in Iowa this afternoon struggled to get out of the single
digits, along with wind chill values holding below zero through much
of the day. Temperatures will quickly fall below zero this evening,
but may actually warm a little bit by Wednesday morning as southerly
winds increase. A warm up will begin tomorrow as highs return to the
mid to upper 20s under sunny skies.

Snow melt will commence in full force by the end of the week. A ridge
of high pressure will build over the Midwest, which will help send
highs back into the 30s and 40s for the back half of the week. Wintry
weather looks set to return on Sunday as a storm system crosses the
Plains. Accumulating snow is most likely across the northwestern tier
of the state. Above freezing temperatures at the onset may result in
rain changing to snow over central and eastern Iowa. Those with travel
interests this weekend should pay attention for forecast updates
through the week.
