Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1055 AM CST Tue Dec 6 2016

There was a bit more chill in the air this morning as a front moved
through the state overnight and began to filter colder air. Lows were
coldest in the west and northwest, in the upper teens, where the
front passed through first while eastern Iowa was relatively mild in
the upper 20s to low 30s. Temperatures through the morning actually
fell in many areas with brisk west and northwest winds increased
across Iowa ushering in the cold air mass. As of late this morning
temperatures ranged from the upper teens on the northwest to the mid
30s in the southeast.

Temperatures this week will easily be the coldest season. If that was
not bad enough, brisk winds will drive wind chill temperatures to
around or below zero for a fair amount of the week, and especially
Thursday. The coldest air temperatures will be seen on Thursday when
highs may struggle to hit 20 across the state. While it will be cold,
snow remains out of the forecast through the end of the work week. The
next opportunity for snow, or precipitation of any kind looks to move
through the region over the weekend.
