Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
427 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

It has been a cool and quiet night across the region. Skies have been
cloudy across most of Iowa, but have slowly cleared across northwest
portions of the state. Winds have ranged from light and variable in
the northwest, to north at 10 to 15 mph in the east. With clear skies
and light winds in northwest Iowa temperatures have fallen to around
freezing, while further south and east they have remained in the 40s.
Patchy drizzle has affected parts of eastern Iowa overnight, but
further west it has remained dry.

Today will not be as cold and raw as yesterday, with lighter winds and
some breaks in the cloud cover. However, high temperatures will still
only be in the mid 50s to lower 60s. Tonight fog will develop across
portions of Iowa, along with patchy drizzle in the eastern half or so
of the state. Mostly sunny and warmer weather will return on Thursday,
with highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s. An active weather period is
forecast from Friday through Sunday, with a frontal boundary setting
up across Iowa on Friday and then pushing off to the southeast by
Sunday. While this will allow for a return of warmer weather across
about the southeast half of the state, with temperatures approaching
80 degrees on Friday and perhaps Saturday, it will also mean a return
of showers and thunderstorms at intervals through the weekend. The
highest thunderstorm chances will come on Saturday and Saturday night,
when severe weather may even be possible across southern and eastern
Iowa. The first part of next week will be mild and dry, with daily
high temperatures Monday through Wednesday generally in the 60s.
