Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1101 AM CST Sun Feb 12 2017

Gusty winds from the northwest averaging 15 to 25 mph were bringing in
cooler air under a mostly sunny sky. Temperatures at mid-morning ranged
from the middle 30s across northern Iowa to the low 40s across
southern Iowa. Winds will remain brisk this afternoon as temperatures
peak in the upper 30s over northeast Iowa with 40s elsewhere across
the state.

Winds will begin to weaken late today as a zone of surface high
pressure begins to build towards the region. This surface high will
pass over the region Monday with ample sunshine and highs in the 40s.
Quiet weather will prevail through the week with little if any
precipitation expected through the end of the week. While there will
be a brief cool down with temperatures near seasonal levels on
Wednesday as a moisture starved system passes well to the northeast of
Iowa, temperatures will begin to moderate as a mid-level ridge of
high pressure begins to build into the Midwest. This will allow the
return of unseasonably warm weather by late this week and for the
middle part of February.
