Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
344 AM CST Tue Feb 13 2018

Central Iowa has made it 24 hours without snow. There have been light
flurries in western to northwestern Iowa through the early morning
hours. However, with the amount of dry air below the clouds, the
flurries have struggled to make it to the ground. Winds have shifted
to blowing from the southwest overnight, supporting warmer air moving
into Iowa. As a result, temperatures have generally remained steady
overnight and even increased in a few places. Overall, temperatures
were in the single digits across northern Iowa, warming to the low 20s
in southern to southwestern Iowa. Winds were from the south to
southwest at 10 to 15 mph.

For the rest of today, expect skies to remain partly to mostly cloudy
and temperatures to continue to rise. Highs yesterday were in the low
teens across northern Iowa to the low 20s in southern Iowa. For today,
highs will be in the mid 20s north to mid 30s south, or a solid 15 or
so degrees warmer than yesterday. Winds should remain from the south
to southwest at around 10 to 15 mph.

There is a chance for light wintry precipitation across much of Iowa
on Thursday. At this time, it looks like this precipitation should be
low impact. Winds overnight Thursday into Friday morning will likely
be decently strong, blowing from the northwest at 20 to 30 mph, with
gusts nearing 35 to 40 mph. Temperatures fall to the teens for Friday,
but may warm up into the 30s for the upcoming weekend.
