Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
520 PM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

If you can believe, the dense fog should be in the rear view mirror
for much of the state. A bit stronger winds helped dissipate fog
today, and some drier air will begin to push in tomorrow. Before
getting too far ahead, highs today remained mild with the cloud cover,
topping out in the mid to upper 30s in most locations and a few places
touching 40. Temperatures through the evening will cool off into the
upper 20s to low 30s, with the lowest temperatures to the west.

Now on to the main story of the next few days. Snow remains in the
forecast Tuesday and Wednesday, including a winter storm watch out
across northern Iowa. While some of the details on final snowfall
amounts and locations will likely change over the next couple of
forecasts, it essentially certain that northern Iowa will see
accumulating snow and central and southern Iowa will see rain snow
mixes. Northern Iowa has the potential to see 6 or more inches of snow
when all said and done, tapering off to an inch or less south of
Interstate 80. After the system moves through, winds will pick up on
Wednesday with gusts to around 30 mph. As a result, blowing snow
potential will be a concern across northern Iowa. Otherwise, the story
the rest of the week will be colder temperatures with highs in the 20s
to low 30s and lows dipping into the teens for some.
