Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
521 PM CST Wed Jan 11 2017

A cold front swept across Iowa earlier today. By late afternoon,
temperatures were in the single digits northwest to the upper 30s and
lower 40s southeast. Winds shifted to the north and increased to 10 to
20 mph with stronger gusts. The combination of colder temperatures and
gusty winds pushed wind chills into the single digits below zero
northwest to the 20s and 30s southeast.

A cold front stretched from the Great lakes into northwest Illinois
and Missouri late this afternoon. 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
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.
