Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1127 AM CST Sun Nov 27 2016

Areas of dense fog in north central and northeast Iowa dissipated this
morning as winds increased from the south. Early morning in the mid
20s in the north to mid 30s in the south rebounded into the 30s and
40s in most locations by late morning with a few low 50s in far
southwest Iowa. Drizzle had develop in portions of south central Iowa
by late morning but this precipitation remained very light.

For the rest of today, slightly more active weather returns to the
the region as a weather system will lift northward from the Central
Plains and spread rain and even a few thunderstorms over Iowa. Rain
should begin across southwestern Iowa by early afternoon and will
spread northeastward throughout the rest of Iowa, reaching northern
Iowa by late afternoon. Temperatures will climb into the mid 40s to
mid 50s across much of the state.

Light rain will continue into Monday morning. With warm air
continuing to be advected into Iowa, overnight temperatures will
remain steady and may even increase. Monday afternoon will bring us
one more day in the 50s, as cooler air will gradually settle in behind
this system for next week...dropping high temperatures back down into
the upper 30s to mid 40s for much of next week. Precipitation-wise,
there are token chances for rain and snow throughout next week, but as
of right now, no significant impact systems are in the forecast.
