Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1058 AM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

Winds have been quickly increasing across Iowa this morning. A Wind
Advisory is in effect for most of the counties west of Interstate 35
until 6 PM this evening. Wind speeds in the advised counties are
anywhere from 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusting to near 50 miles
per hour. Moving to far northern and northeastern Iowa a wintry mix
of snow and sleet is falling making some roads icy. Little to no
accumulation is expected. Rain is possible across the southern half of
the state as well, but the lack of moisture will make it difficult
for any substantial amounts of rain. The front guiding these winds and
precipitation will move through the state today dropping temperatures
throughout the afternoon. By this evening temperatures across the
state will be in the lower 30s to mid 40s, and temperatures overnight
will continue to drop into the upper teens to lower 20s.

Calmer winds are expected tomorrow, but temperatures will be lower
only rising into the mid 20s to mid 30s across the state. Weather wise
conditions will be quiet. Through the rest of the week temperatures
will be on the rise getting into the upper 30s to upper 50s with lows
in the lower 20s to lower 30s. Chances for rain are low, but far
northern Iowa could see some snow chances towards the end of next
