Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
540 PM CST Fri Feb 17 2017

Sunshine and spring like conditions were the story of the day over
most of the central tier of the country today. Numerous daily record
highs fell across the state of Iowa today as temperatures soared into
the 60s to mid 70s, which is more than 30 degrees above normal for mid
February. At some sites, including Des Moines and Waterloo, today
marked the second warmest February day on record.

The warm conditions will continue right through the weekend
and into the first half of next week. Showers and a few thunderstorms
will track over the state on Monday. Brief heavy rainfall will be
possible at times, but severe weather is not likely. The forecast
then dries out until the second half of the week when a storm system
tracks across the Central and Northern Plains, which will likely bring
some precipitation and cooler temperatures into the state.
