Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
430 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

Fog continued into the morning hours for much of southern to central
Iowa for yet another morning. As of 4 am, fog was beginning to
infiltrate northern Iowa as well. Visibility was a widespread quarter
to half a mile or less for much of the overnight period. Temperatures
overnight were generally in the upper 20s to low 30s. This led to
periods of freezing fog at the cooler locations. At 4 am, the
temperature in Des Moines was 34 degrees, it was 33 in Waterloo, and
the temperature at Mason City was 32 degrees. Winds were generally
light and variable, although gradually increasing to around 5 mph from
the northwest.

For the rest of today, similar to yesterday, foggy to hazy skies will
likely continue across northern Iowa...With the dense fog lifting
between 10 am and noon. Central to southern Iowa should see generally
cloudy skies with a few holes of sun periodically poking through.
Highs should top out in the mid 30s to low 40s across Iowa. Winds
will become northwesterly at around 5 to 10 mph.

Temperatures will not cool down very much behind the low, however, as
highs should remain in the mid 30s to mid 40s into the middle of the
upcoming week. The next best chance for widespread precipitation
comes Tuesday into Wendesday as another wintry weather system looks to
pass through the Midwest. Temperatures may cool down notably behind
this system.
