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

A cold front passed through much of Iowa overnight as a storm system
passed through the Region. Ahead of the front in eastern Iowa,
temperatures remained in the 30s for most of the night with low clouds
and fog quite common. In central and western Iowa behind the front,
strong west to northwest winds had developed with colder air pushing
into the state. Readings in far western Iowa had dropped into the
upper teens to lower 20s during the early morning hours. Some light
rain and snow showers occurred with the front as it passed through the
state but produced little in the way of amounts.

An overall change in the weather pattern is expected this week with
the jet stream settling farther south in the country. This will allow
colder air to encompass much of the region with temperatures below
normal for the remainder of the work week in Iowa and surrounding
states. There will be some threat of flurries on Wednesday south of
Iowa and additional very light snow north of the state on Thursday.
Winds will be quite brisk this week with wind chills dropping below
zero across Iowa during the nighttime hours on Wednesday and Thursday
nights. Some gradual moderation in temperatures is expected by next
weekend along with a chance of light snow on Saturday into Saturday
