Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
539 PM CST Thu Nov 16 2017

While temperatures rose 15 to 20 or more degrees during the day, that
did not mean it was a extremely nice day. With the cold start to the
day, the resulting highs were only in the mid 30s to mid 40s across
the state. It was notably nicer in southwest Iowa where not only did
temperatures reach the 40s, but also got to see a healthy amount of
sunshine. The northeast half to two thirds of the state on the other
hand had to deal with clouds and highs in the mid to upper 30s

Fear not, though, as temperatures will see a good rise for Friday,
with mid 40s to the northeast and 50s across much of the southwest.
Unfortunately, that is where the good news stops. Clouds will dominate
and areas of drizzle and light rain will stick around through the day
ahead of a cold front that will move through late Friday. Speaking of
that cold front, some snow will be possible behind the front as
temperatures fall, though would not amount to much with warm ground
temperatures. Highs through the weekend will fall into the 30s and
40s for highs through the weekend, with lows bottoming out in the
upper teens to mid 20s by Sunday morning.
