Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
459 AM CST Tue Jan 16 2018

Arctic air was entrenched across Iowa early this morning with
widespread readings in the single digits above and below zero and most
locations zero or less. Brisk northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph made it
feel even colder with wind chills ranging from the teens below zero
east to 30 to 35 below northwest. Skies were mostly cloudy across the
state with occasional flurries quite common.

It will remain bitter cold across the Midwest this morning with Wind
Chill Advisories or Wind Chill Warnings in effect for many locations.
The flurries should end toward midday but highs will only reach single
digits and teens above zero. Temperatures will moderate heading toward
midweek however with readings back to near normal by tomorrow. In fact
further warming is anticipated to end the work week with highs in the
30s northeast to 40s southwest. After this morning, the next chances
for precipitation don`t arrive until the weekend when a large system
looks to bring rain or snow chances along with brisk winds by early
next week.
