Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
512 AM CST Sun Nov 27 2016

Freezing dense fog was present this morning from northern Iowa into
Minnesota and into western Wisconsin. From the fog, visibilities
dropped down to less than one quarter of a mile at times. Elsewhere,
skies were mostly clear, with clouds on the increase from southwest to
northeast. Normal low temperatures for this time of year are in the
mid 20s. With temperatures hovering in the mid 20s across eastern
Iowa, to mid 30s across western Iowa this morning, minimum
temperatures for today were near to slightly above normal. At 5 am,
Des Moines had a low of 36 degrees, Waterloo had a low of 25, and the
temperature in Madison, Wisconsin was 32 degrees. Winds were generally
out of the south at less than 5 mph.

For the rest of today, slightly more active weather returns to the
the region as a weather system will lift northward from the Central
Plains and spread rain and even a few thunderstorms over Iowa. Rain
should begin across southwestern Iowa during the morning and will
spread northeastward throughout the rest of Iowa, reaching northern
Iowa by the afternoon hours. Temperatures should be in the mid 40s to
low 50s across much of the state.

Light rain will continue into Monday morning. With warm air continuing
to be advected into Iowa, overnight temperatures will remain steady
and may even increase. Monday afternoon will bring us one more day in
the 50s, as cooler air will gradually settle in behind this system
for next week...dropping high temperatures back down into the upper
30s to mid 40s for much of next week. Precipitation-wise, there are
token chances for rain and snow throughout next week, but as of right
now, no significant impact systems are in the forecast.
