Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
546 PM CDT Thu Apr 27 2017

You have to focus on the small victories during periods of weather
like this. So what was the small victory today? Sunshine! While areas
of northeast Iowa remain under cloud cover, much of southwest and
central Iowa saw sunshine break out today. That sunshine helped boost
temperatures, only into the 50s, but more importantly made the cooler
temperatures much more tolerable. As of early this evening,
temperatures ranged from the very chilly upper 30s in northern and
northeast Iowa to the more pleasant and sun filled upper 50s in
southern and southwest Iowa. Clouds will continue to slowly clear out
of northeast Iowa, only to watch cloud cover move back into western
Iowa this evening.

The cool to cold conditions will continue to end the week and into the
weekend, including likely frost tonight across areas of northern Iowa
and northward through the region. In addition to the sustained cool to
cold conditions, showers will move back in overnight and tomorrow and
will see chances linger into Monday. Throughout this time highs will
remain well below normal with 40s and lower 50s dominating. The
coldest days will be Sunday and Monday, where highs in the upper 30s
will be seen across areas to the north and northwest. Snowfall will
also return to the region Sunday into Monday, roughly affecting areas
west, northwest, and north of Fort Dodge Iowa.
