Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1059 AM CST Wed Nov 15 2017

A cold front tracked across the state of Iowa overnight and this
morning, bringing a dramatic change to the dreary weather seen over
the last 48 hours. Dry and breezy northwest winds behind the front
scoured out much of the cloud cover giving way to the first sunshine
most of the area has seen in a few days. Despite the sunshine
temperatures through the day will hold steady and or slowly fall,
generally hanging in the 40s over most of the state. Increasing cloud
cover is likely this afternoon in northern Iowa, but no drizzle or fog
is expected.

More sunshine is likely tomorrow as skies remain partly to mostly
clear with afternoon highs in the upper 30s and 40s. Strengthening
south winds bring warmer air back into the area by Friday, but along
with it will come another round of extensive cloud cover and drizzle.
A strong cold front sweeps across the state Friday evening into
Friday night, which will bring strong gusty winds and cooler
temperatures. Some light rain is possible Friday night, possibly
switching light snow Saturday morning before conditions dry out. Below
normal highs are likely through the weekend.
