Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
453 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017

A large bank of dense fog has developed across parts of north central
and northeast Iowa overnight. Within the fog bank winds are light and
variable, temperatures are hovering around 30 degrees, and visibility
is below a quarter of a mile. Elsewhere in Iowa winds have come around
to southeast at less than 10 mph, skies are mostly clear, and
temperatures have slowly rebounded into the mid 30s to lower 40s.

The dense fog will dissipate after sunrise this morning, giving way to
another warm and mostly sunny day with near record high temperatures
ranging from 60s north to lower 70s south. The near record warmth will
persist through Wednesday, likely peaking on Tuesday afternoon when
temperatures will rise well into the 70s across about the southwest
half of the state. On Monday showers and isolated thunderstorms will
move across the region, departing to the east in the evening.

A big change is in store at the end of the work week, with a large and
strong storm system crossing the Midwest from late Thursday through
Friday. This system will spread precipitation across most or all of
Iowa, but the track of the storm and resulting precipitation types
remain uncertain.
