Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
500 PM CST Sat Dec 9 2017

It was a chilly afternoon across the state of Iowa as northwest winds
helped supply a fresh round of cold air to the region. Afternoon highs
ranged from the low 20s in northwest Iowa to the mid 30s in the
southwest corner of the state. A brief warm up is in store for
tomorrow as temperatures rise into the upper 30s to upper 40s.

The warmer air will be short lived as another cold front surges south
through the state on Monday, which will bring cooler air and strong
northwest winds. Winds may gust above 40 mph at times as the front
moves through. Light snow is possible in northeast Iowa early in the
day, but most locations will stay dry. Several fronts will pass
through during the next week as the weather pattern remains quite
active, but the presence of dry air will likely limit our chances for
measurable snowfall. Highs will fluctuate between the 30s and 40s in
between frontal passages along with periodic gusty northwest winds.
