Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1109 AM CST Tue Dec 12 2017

A bit of snow brushed the northeast part of the state with Dubuque
recording 1.3 inches of snow this morning. Most places remained dry
overnight, but the cold weather early this morning was prevalent
across the area. Lows this morning ranged from the single digits above
zero over parts of northern and central Iowa with low and middle
teens elsewhere. Temperatures have recovered some late this morning
into the upper teens to low 20s.

While latest satellite imagery shows little cloud cover over the
state, more clouds will filter in this afternoon from the northwest as
temperatures peak in the 20s over the northeast part of Iowa with
middle 40s near the Nebraska border. Clouds will thicken more tonight
into Wednesday with the possibility of rain or snow as a quick moving
system passes through, but little if any accumulation is expected.
Strong winds will develop on Wednesday with gusts between 35 and 45
mph possible. Another system will pass through on Thursday with
another over the weekend, but moisture looks limited at the moment.
Highs will be near climatological values in the 30s to near 40
