WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1115 AM CST SUN JAN 31 2016

AREAS OF LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE FELL ACROSS CENTRAL AND EASTERN
IOWA THIS MORNING BUT DID NOT RESULT IN MUCH...IF
ANY...ACCUMULATION. SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLOUDY TO CLOUDY WITH A FEW
BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS IN THE NORTHWEST. TEMPERATURES REMAINED
NEARLY STEADY IN THE 30S WITH A NORTHWEST WIND AROUND 5 TO 10 MPH.

THE AREA OF LIGHT RAIN MAY MIX WITH LIGHT SNOW AS IT MOVES ACROSS
EASTERN IOWA AND INTO WISCONSIN AND NORTHERN ILLINOIS TODAY. A
MORE SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT THE MIDWEST MONDAY NIGHT
THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY. THERE IS A HIGH PROBABILITY FOR A BAND OF
MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOWFALL FROM SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA THROUGH THE
NORTHWEST HALF OF IOWA AND INTO SOUTHWESTERN WISCONSIN WHILE THE
PRECIPITATION REMAINS PRIMARILY RAIN TO THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST.
STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY THE SNOW...LEADING TO
CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW AND VERY DIFFICULT
TRAVEL CONDITIONS. FOR THIS REASON...WINTER STORM AND BLIZZARD
WATCHES HAVE BEEN ISSUED FOR MUCH OF THE REGION. STAY TUNED TO THE
LATEST FORECASTS REGARDING THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF THIS WINTER
STORM.

AS THIS STORM DEPARTS...COOLER AIR WILL ARRIVE IN ITS PLACE FOR
MIDWEEK WITH SEASONABLY COOL WEATHER CONTINUING THROUGH THE END OF
THE WEEK. ANOTHER ROUND OF LIGHT SNOW IS POSSIBLE OVER THE REGION
FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING.
