Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
545 AM CST Mon Dec 5 2016

Light south winds were common across Iowa overnight as low clouds and
fog developed across eastern portions of the state. Visibilities below
one quarter of a mile became common in the east and Dense Fog
Advisories were issued for the poor driving conditions. Overnight lows
remained mostly in the low to mid 30s across the state which is well
above normal for this time of year.

Strong south winds are expected across much of the Region today ahead
of an approaching cold front. This will allow relatively warm air to
push into Iowa and surrounding locations today with highs in the 40s
and even a few 50s by afternoon. A few showers will be possible ahead
of the approaching cold front across the Dakotas into Minnesota as
well. By tonight, the front will blow through Iowa with a few
scattered showers in the north as cold air pushes across the Dakotas
and into the state. Much colder readings are forecast for the rest of
the work week as a Polar airmass settles into the Region. There may be
a few occasions of flurries or very light snow in Iowa on Wednesday
and Thursday, but accumulations are not expected.
