Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
415 AM CDT Sun Apr 23 2017

Skies were clear across all of Iowa during the night as high pressure
moved across the state. The high brought light winds across the state
allowing temperatures to cool nicely. Readings by early morning ranged
from the mid 30s to mid 40s across the state. Some patchy areas of
frost occurred in the cool spots and valleys of western and northern
Iowa from the cooler temperatures.

A cold front extending from the western Dakotas into northern
Wisconsin will drop southward close to the Iowa and Minnesota border
by early afternoon. South of the boundary, temperatures will climb
into the 70s as winds increase from the south. Farther north behind
the front, much cooler temperatures in the 30s and 40s are expected in
North Dakota and Minnesota with some light rain possible today. This
boundary will begin to lift northward later tonight into Monday as low
pressure moves from western South Dakota into Minnesota. Showers are
expected along the path of the low across the upper Midwest later
tonight into Monday. Some of these may graze northern Iowa on Monday,
however conditions are expected to remain mainly dry. Temperatures
will remain above normal into Monday in Iowa into surrounding areas as
the low moves into northern Minnesota.
