Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
523 PM CST Wed Dec 6 2017

Snow! Well, at least some flurries to light snow made their way
across parts of central and southern Iowa today. Fortunately it did
not amount to anything more than a dusting on grass or other elevated
surfaces. Many are still coping with the fact that it has gotten cold,
in December, and an accumulating snowfall probably would not have
helped matters. Highs today topped out in the mid 20s to low 40s
across Iowa, but a brisk northwest wind made it feel more like the
teens to twenties.

This evening a dusting of snow could hit northern Iowa, while the rest
of the state will just cope with cold, breezy northwest winds
throughout the night. The coldest lows of the season will move in
tonight, ranging from the upper single digits across the north to the
mid teens as you approach southern Iowa. Wind chills to start the day
will be bitter as well, generally near or below zero across the state.

Fortunately, temperatures do look to surge back into the 40s for many,
but that will not take place until Sunday. In the mean time,
temperatures will remain on the cold side with highs in the 20s
Thursday then the 20s to mid 30s to end the week and into Saturday. A
couple chances for light snow will also move through, but will mainly
affect the northern two thirds of the state Friday and northeast and
eastern Iowa Friday night and Saturday morning.
