Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
514 PM CST Mon Feb 13 2017

We swear it is still February, even though it may not feel like it.
Temperatures today once again reached well into the 40s and lower 50s
across the state. Compared to normal, temperatures today were around
15 to 20 degrees above normal, which would be more in line with normal
temperatures for mid March. As of early this evening, temperatures had
fallen off from daytime highs a few degrees, generally ranging from
the low to mid 40s across northern Iowa to the mid and upper 40s in
southern Iowa.

Temperatures will continue to be well above normal for much of the
next week plus. There will be one cool day, yet still above normal,
Wednesday before quickly warming back up to end the week. Meaning,
highs by Wednesday will be about 10 or more degrees cooler than today
then warming up into the upper 50s to mid 60s by Friday. To put
potential temperatures Friday in perspective, they will be around 20
to 25 degrees warmer than normal across the state. All the while,
precipitation remains out of the forecast through the work week and
weekend. The next opportunity for looks to move into the region late
Sunday and on through Monday with the potential for a rumble of
thunder or two as well.
