Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
459 PM CST Tue Feb 13 2018

Most Iowans are likely enjoying a change of pace with our weather this
afternoon as southerly winds and abundant sunshine have led to the
warmest day our state has seen in over a week. Highs range from the
low 30s in northern Iowa to the mid 40s in the far south. This has
kicked off the melting of our fresh snow pack. Some areas of fog are
possible tonight as we cool into the 20s, but otherwise mostly clear
skies are expected.

Even warmer conditions are expected Wednesday as much of the state
warms into the 40s. This will continue to put a dent in the snow pack
and melting takes place through much of the daylight hours. Cooling
temperatures over the melting snow will lead to the development of
widespread fog Wednesday night.

A cold front will traverse the state on Thursday which bring below
normal temperatures back into the forecast. The cool down wont last
long as warmer temperatures in the 30s and 40s return for the weekend.
Chances for rain and snow enter the forecast early next week, but at
this time any threat of significant winter weather appears to be low.
