Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1039 AM CST Wed Jan 11 2017

After a fairly eventful day yesterday, things overnight calmed down
quite a bit. Temperatures overnight ranged quite a bit thanks to the
return of southerly winds and the eventual entrance of a cold front in
northwest Iowa. As a result, lows ranged from the single digits in the
northwest to the mid 20s across central and southern Iowa. Many of
those lows, except for the northwest, were reached around midnight.
With a cold front continuing to make its way through the state,
temperatures ranged widely late this morning. Northwest Iowa remained
in the upper single digits while much of southern Iowa resided in the
upper 30s.

Temperatures will generally be cold to end the week with highs ranging
from around ten to the mid-20s and lows from around negative 10 to
the teens. While winds are not expected to be strong during the
overnight and morning hours, wind chills will approach negative 20 at
times across the north and zero across the south. Some very light
precipitation will make appearances this afternoon and overnight, but
should amount to nothing more than very light freezing drizzle or
snow. The main weather maker is likely to move through Sunday
afternoon through Monday, where the opportunity for snow, freezing
rain, and rain will exist. Understandably, travel conditions later
Sunday through Monday could be very hazardous at times and forecasts
should be monitored closely.
