Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
449 PM CST Sun Dec 4 2016

Snow has gradually been moving eastward and out of Iowa throughout the
Sunday daytime hours. On average, an additional inch of snow fell
after the Sunday noon hour across eastern Iowa. The snow continued to
be of the heavy and wet variety, often melting on roadways and
sticking in grassy areas. Elsewhere, skies were cloudy, and
temperatures were near to slightly below normal for this time of year.
Normal high temperatures for early December are generally in the mid
to upper 30s. At 4 pm, the temperature in Des Moines was 38 degrees,
it was 33 in Waterloo, and the temperature in Mason City was 34
degrees. Sunday afternoon winds were generally from the south to
southwest at 5 to 10 mph.

After one relatively warm day on Monday in the upper 40s across
western Iowa into the upper 30s across eastern Iowa, temperatures will
begin a downward trend through the week, likely bottoming out
Thursday with highs in the teens to around 20. Lows will be tempered a
bit with cloud cover, keeping most areas in the double digits.
Northwest and western Iowa will be the most likely locations for
single digit lows Thursday and Friday morning. Other than a couple of
small opportunities for flurries during the week, the next opportunity
for precipitation, in this case snowfall, doesn`t come through until
next weekend.
