Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
438 AM CST Sat Dec 3 2016

Clouds still covered much of northern and eastern Iowa early this
morning, but skies had cleared west and south. Temperatures heading
toward daybreak remained in the upper 20s to middle 30s under the
cloud cover, but dipped into the middle 20s southwest where the clouds
had departed. Winds were light and variable as high pressure crossed
the Missouri River Valley.

This high pressure may bring a period of sunshine to the Midwest to
start the weekend, but that will give way to more clouds and
eventually precipitation later in the day Saturday. A mixture of
rain and snow will cross the Plains into Iowa late in the day, and
then turn to predominately snow by early Sunday morning as it heads
into southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Farther south, mainly
rain is anticipated through Missouri. This will be the most
appreciable snowfall of the season to date with amounts from one to
three inches from the Interstate 35 corridor farther east across the
Mississippi River. The precipitation should end to start the work
week with highs back into the 40s starting to melt the snow.
