Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
428 AM CDT Thu Mar 16 2017

Mid and high level clouds helped to provide for a much milder night
over most of Iowa. However, cold air lingered over northeastern Iowa
where clear skies allowed for temperatures to drop off quickly. Low
temperatures ranged from around 10 degrees over parts of northeast
Iowa to the low 30s over far western Iowa.

After the unseasonably cold weather yesterday, temperatures will
gradually be on the rise through the weekend. High temperatures on
Thursday will be anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees higher than yesterday
with highs ranging from the upper 30s over northern Iowa to near 60
degrees over southwest Iowa. Winds will also become gusty from the
south and southeast as a warm front approaches from the west. This
warm front will provide lift for some drizzle or a few showers over
eastern Iowa Thursday night and areas of fog may also develop over
northern Iowa. Skies will turn brighter on Friday with gusty winds
from the northwest. High temperatures will remain at or above normal
through the weekend. The warmest day will likely be Sunday where parts
of southwestern Iowa will rise to around 70 degrees and there will be
a chance for thunderstorms later Sunday into early Monday over
southern Iowa.
