Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
432 AM CST Sat Feb 17 2018

Light south winds around 10 mph or less have allowed temperatures to
remain in the 20s overnight beneath mostly cloudy skies. Light snow
has moved in from South Dakota and is now falling over parts of
northwest Iowa.

The light snow will move across northern Iowa this morning, but
produce only light accumulations generally under an inch before moving
away in the afternoon. Temperatures will warm through the weekend,
with highs Sunday afternoon in the 40s north and 50s south melting
much of the remaining snow on the ground. A potentially significant
winter storm will then affect the region from late Sunday night into
Tuesday. Freezing rain and ice accumulations are expected across about
the northwest half of Iowa from late Sunday night into Monday, then
across much of the southeastern half from Monday night into Tuesday.
This will make for hazardous travel at times. Temperatures on Monday
will feature a large gradient across Iowa, with highs in the 60s
southeast but only in the 20s northwest, then cooler weather will set
in on Tuesday and Wednesday.
