Areas of fog, drizzle and light rain moved across Iowa overnight in
advance of a cold front. The cold front had reached eastern Iowa by 4
am this morning and was ushering in cooler and drier air into the
state along with gusty northwest winds. Temperatures early this
morning ranged from the mid 40s to lower 50s east to the upper 30s
northwest. Mostly cloudy skies remained across much of the state
except for the far west where partial clearing had arrived.

The breezy conditions will persist today as the boundary moves east
and high pressure approaches from the west. Clearing skies are
expected to move into central Iowa today, however, partly to mostly
cloudy conditions may persist from northeast Iowa and into portions
of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois. The area of high pressure will
settle over the Midwest tonight and will allow temperatures to drop
into the 20s overnight. Another system will arrive Friday into
Saturday. Mostly cloudy skies and drizzle or light rain are again
expected Friday and may be followed by a brief transition to light
snow Friday night before the precipitation ends.
