Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1049 AM CST Mon Nov 13 2017

Widespread fog was the story of the morning across the state of Iowa.
Some of the fog was particularity dense in areas of south of Highway
30 with visibility below a quarter mile at times. With below freezing
temperatures overnight the fog caused slick conditions on some
elevated road surfaces. As of late morning the dense fog conditions
had improved over much of southern Iowa, but low visibility conditions
continue in central and north central Iowa. The fog and low cloud
cover will hold temperatures back today with highs generally in the
low to mid 40s.

More fog and drizzle is expected tonight into Tuesday, but
temperatures should be warmer with highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s.
The warmest readings will be in central and western Iowa. Rain showers
will be possible Tuesday night as a front moves through. The middle of
the week looks quiet with near normal temperatures, but more active
weather is likely by the end of the week as a strong low pressure
system crosses the northern Plains. Blustery winds and colder
temperatures are likely by Friday or Saturday. Thunderstorms and some
light wintry precipitation are also possible, however the
precipitation forecast still remain uncertain at this time range.
