Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1034 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017

An area of fog across portions of northern, central and northeast Iowa
greeted early risers this morning, but quickly dissipated as the sun
rose. Overnight lows were once again a bit of a mixed bag with various
areas ranging from the upper 20s to the upper 30s. By late this
morning temperatures had begun another quick rise into record and
near-record territories with mid and upper 40s across the north and
mid 50s across the south.

With highs generally forecast into the upper 60s and low 70s over the
next few days, many daily record highs will be in jeopardy each of
those days. Additionally, the dry conditions will come to an end after
today as a wave of moisture moves through tomorrow. Given the warmth,
a few rumbles of thunder will be likely as well, especially with
heavier rains. In general, a quarter to half inch of rain will likely
be seen across the state and surrounding areas, with some locally
heavier amounts possible underneath thunderstorms.

After the rain Monday, dry conditions return through the remainder of
the week. The warm and dry temperatures will likely come to an end by
the end of the week though as a low pressure system moves into the
region, bringing with it opportunities for showers, some snow, gusty
winds, and colder temperatures.
