Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
526 PM CST Mon Feb 12 2018

The snowy streak over the region has finally come to an end as the
entire state of Iowa saw a dry day for the first time in a week. Below
normal temperatures remained over the state in the presence of light
northeasterly winds, with temperatures further held back by the
abundant fresh snow cover. Increasing cloud cover will help moderate
temperatures somewhat overnight, but lows will still fall into the
single digits or teens.

A steady warm up into mid-week is expected over the next few days,
which should help begin to melt the dense snow pack over the area. The
warmest day should be Wednesday, as temperatures rise into the 40s and
possibly into the low 50s in southern Iowa. A cold front pushes
through the state on Thursday, which will bring below normal
temperatures back into the area to end the week. Light light rain or
snow is possible as the front moves through, mainly in the eastern
tier of the state. Warmer temperatures should return as wind become
southerly again by Sunday. The majority of the forecast is dry, but
some wintry precipitation is likely over parts of the Upper Midwest
early next week.
