Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
415 AM CST Sat Jan 13 2018

Clouds continue over the southern Iowa early this Saturday morning
while clearing skies are moving into Northern Iowa. Temperatures range
from nearly 10 below in the far north to 10 above in southern Iowa
where clouds remain. Winds are north at 5 to 10 mph early today.

Quiet and cold conditions will be the rule today as an area of high
pressure slides through the state. Highs today will reach the single
digits north to the mid teens south by late day. Lows tonight will
again be cold with readings as low as 10 below over northeast Iowa to
the upper single digits southwest. On Sunday southerly winds will
warm highs back into the mid teens to mid 20s. There will be a chance
for light snow over the southwest in the morning and then later in
the afternoon and evening a broader area of light snow will precede a
strong cold front moving south through the Northern Plains and Iowa.
Most areas will see less than an inch of snowfall, but parts of
northeast Iowa may see up to 2 inches of snowfall Sunday night into
early Monday morning.

As the Arctic cold front quickly drops south of Iowa Sunday night the
arrival of another extremely cold airmass will occur over the region.
We will be back in the deep freeze from Monday through Tuesday night
with breezy northwest winds and sub-zero highs Monday over the north
half of the state and areas north. Temperatures are likely to fall
most of the day Monday with strong northwest winds. Most of Monday
will see wind chills of 15 to 30 below zero across Iowa and states to
the north where 30 below readings will be common. The region will also
have wind chills of 30 below or colder Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Some relief is expected by mid to late week with highs back in the 20s
and 30s Wednesday and Thursday with 40s on the way by Friday.
