Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
423 AM CST Thu Feb 15 2018

It has been a quiet and fairly mild night, with temperatures hovering
in the 30s across most of Iowa beneath high cirrus clouds. Winds have
become light and variable and areas of fog have developed, with some
dense fog primarily in parts of eastern Iowa.

Fog will persist for much of this morning, then slowly dissipate by
the afternoon. A cold front will surge across the region from this
afternoon into tonight, bringing a chance for light snow mainly across
northern Iowa, then colder temperatures overnight and on Friday. Even
so, highs on Friday afternoon will generally be in the 20s, and a
warming trend setting in this weekend will bring temperatures all the
way up into the lower 50s across parts of southern and southwestern
Iowa by Sunday afternoon.

Early next week a dynamic storm system will affect the region,
bringing a return of precipitation across Iowa along with rapidly
changing temperatures. On Monday high temperatures will range from the
20s in northwestern Iowa to near 60 degrees in the southeast, with a
mix of precipitation likely across the state. A cold front will then
send temperatures plummeting, with highs on Tuesday only in the teens
northwest to 30s southeast. Precipitation from Sunday night into
Tuesday will be a mix of rain, snow, and ice and could lead to
difficult travel conditions at times.
