Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
443 AM CST Tue Jan 10 2017

Skies were mostly cloudy overnight with just a few areas of light rain
or light freezing rain central and north heading toward daybreak.
South to southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph kept temperatures steady or
slowly rising overnight with readings at or above freezing as far
north as Denison, Clarion and Charles City by 5am. Temperatures were
even in the lower 40s south.

The weather will be quite changeable today however as low pressure
along the eastern Kansas Nebraska border moves through Iowa by midday
and into Wisconsin by afternoon. This will bring a period of rain from
central and southern Iowa into Illinois, but a wintry mix of freezing
rain, sleet and snow farther north into Minnesota and Wisconsin before
switching to all snow and ending west to east from the afternoon into
the early evening. This may bring light ice or snow accumulations and
travel difficulties, including wind gusts to 40 mph, to northern Iowa
and adjacent states where Winter Weather Advisories are in effect

Winter will become further entrenched across the region to end
the work week with more chances for light snow across the Northern
Plains into northern Iowa Wednesday into Thursday. Overnight lows are
expected to drop all the way down from the teens below zero north to
single digits above zero south by early Friday morning.
