Weather Summary for Iowa

533 PM CST Mon Nov 28 2016
It was an interesting day for portions of the state today with a big
low pressure center northwest of the state to blame. Ahead of the cold
front, breezy southerly winds dominated and allowed highs to soar into
the 50s and even low 60s across southern Iowa. During the afternoon,
storms developed ahead and along the cold front as it worked its way
eastward and provided periods of heavy rain, small hail, and even a
few weak tornadoes.
With the cold front working its way across the remainder of the state
this evening, temperatures for the remainder of the week will dip
back towards normal. Highs will predominantly reside in the mid 30s
to lower 40s, with coolest temperatures by the end of the week.
Roughly the northern third to half of the state will also see an
opportunity for some light snow and rain late Tuesday into Wednesday.
Any accumulating snowfall will be light, less than an inch, and should
melt during the daytime hours.
