Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1037 AM CST Fri Jan 20 2017

Another day, another morning filled with fog and dreary conditions
across much of the state. Once again, lows were mild across the state
thanks to widespread fog and other cloud cover, only falling a couple
degrees into the low to mid 30s. With fog and cloud cover continuing
to blanket much of the state this morning, temperatures remained
within a degree or two of morning lows. The remainder of the day will
see fog slowly improve, but possibly not entirely be eliminated,
through the day along with temperatures into the upper 30s and low 40s
and light southeasterly to easterly winds.

The main story into early next week will be mild conditions with
temperatures generally into the 40s and a bit of cooling with
northwesterly winds ending the weekend. After a round of light
precipitation moving through the state tonight and into tomorrow the
next opportunity for any rain or snow will not move through until the
Tuesday-Wednesday time frame. At that point, a big low pressure system
is likely to affect the region, bringing about opportunities for rain,
snow and strong winds. Details on temperatures and precipitation
amounts will come into more focus over the next few forecast updates.
Behind that system, temperatures cool off with likely highs around
freezing and lows into the teens and 20s.
