WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
649 PM CST THU FEB 4 2016

OTHER THAN SOME LIGHT SNOW AND FLURRIES TRAVERSING THE NORTHERN
HALF OF THE STATE...IT WAS A QUIET AND PLEASANT DAY. THE SOUTHERN
HALF OF THE STATE SAW THE MOST SUNSHINE AND HIGHS REACH INTO THE
30S...AND NEAR 40 TOWARDS THE MISSOURI BORDER. THE NORTHERN HALF
OF THE STATE SAW A MIXTURE OF SUNSHINE AND THEN CLOUDS WITH THE
LIGHT SNOW AND FLURRIES...BUT WERE ABLE TO STILL REACH INTO THE
MID AND UPPER 20S IN MOST LOCATIONS. AS OF EARLY THIS
EVENING...MOST LOCATIONS REMAINED WITHIN A FEW DEGREES OF DAYTIME
HIGHS...WITH THE EXCEPTION BEING NORTHWEST IOWA WHERE CLEAR SKIES
HAVE ALLOWED THEM TO ALREADY COOL DOWN INTO THE TEENS.

LOOKING FORWARD THE NEXT FEW DAYS...AFTER A BRIEF PAUSE FOR HIGH
TEMPERATURES TOMORROW...WARMING WILL RETURN FOR THE
WEEKEND...TOPPING OUT IN THE 30S AND 40S BY SUNDAY.
UNFORTUNATELY...THAT RELATIVE WARMTH WILL BE SHORT LIVED AS A LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM PUSHES INTO THE REGION FROM CANADA AND BRINGS BACK
COLD TEMPERATURES TO START NEXT WEEK. HIGHS MONDAY WILL BE IN THE
20S...WHILE TUESDAY WILL SEE WIDE SPREAD TEENS FOR HIGHS.

CHANCES FOR ANY RAIN OR SNOW ARE PRETTY LIMITED. THE NORTHERN
THIRD TO HALF OF THE STATE WILL SEE SOME LIGHT SNOW ACTION AGAIN
TOMORROW...AMOUNTING TO AS MUCH AS A HALF INCH ACROSS THE NORTH.
MORE WIDESPREAD CHANCES WILL PUSH THROUGH SUNDAY AND INTO MONDAY
WITH THE IMPENDING COOL DOWN...AND LOOKS LIKE A MIXED BAG OF
RAIN AND SNOW INITIALLY FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN
IOWA...WHILE NORTHERN IOWA SHOULD SEE ALL SNOW.
