Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1041 AM CST Mon Nov 28 2016

Strong low pressure over the Dakotas continued to influence the
weather across Iowa this morning. Strong southerly flow ahead of the
low was transporting unseasonably moist and mild air into the state.
Temperatures during the morning hours were over 30 degrees above
normal for typical lows for late November with reading in the 50s in
many locations at sunrise. Some clearing had occurred in western Iowa
during the morning where drier air had worked into the state. Farther
east, the fetch of warm moist air streaming northward continued to
produced clouds and a few showers over the eastern half of the state.

For the rest of today, the low will remain west of the area with warm
temperatures expected across the southeast half of the region
including Iowa. Meanwhile, showers and isolated storms will continue
from eastern Iowa through much of the Mississippi River valley as
moisture continues to move northward today. Cooler air across the
upper Midwest will gradually settle southward through the week with
temperatures cooling but still holding above normal for this time of
year. There will also be some threat of rain and snow showers across
northern Iowa into adjacent areas of Minnesota on Wednesday as the
upper low dips back toward the state. The system will eventually pull
east of the region by the end of the work week putting an end to any
precipitation threat.
