Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
558 PM CST Tue Nov 29 2016

After a mild start to the week, and even a few tornadoes on Monday the
colder air moved in. Highs across the northwest half of the state were
more in line with normals this time of the year, in the upper 30s to
low 40s. The southeast half of the state remained on the warm side
with southwest winds sticking around, boosting temps into the upper
40s and 50s. Clouds also continued to slowly expand eastward through
the day as the parent low pressure system continued to meander across
Minnesota. Temperatures as of early this evening remained within a
few degrees of daytime highs in most locations, with the largest drops
in southeast Iowa where clear skies remained.

Temperatures through the week and into the weekend will remain around
normal to just below normal with highs in the 30s to low 40s and
morning lows in the 20s. Roughly the northern half of the state will
see opportunities for flurries, light snow, and rain snow mixes,
beginning this evening and through Wednesday. Accumulations
approaching an inch will be possible across far northern Iowa,
tapering off to trace amounts by around Highway 30. The next
opportunity for any rain or snow after mid-week comes Sunday into
Monday as system passes primarily to the north of the state.
