Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1042 AM CST Sat Feb 18 2017

Clear skies and light winds allowed temperatures overnight to quickly
fall back into the 30s and even a few upper 20s across the state.
While temperatures did fall quite a bit from the many record highs set
yesterday, lows were quite comfortable compared to normal lows in the
teens to around 20. By late this morning temperatures had begun their
march back into the 60s with mid 40s to mid 50s widespread.

The abnormal warmth will continue today and over the next few days,
but should stay away from widespread record breaking. The prime
candidates for broken will reside primarily across central and
southern Iowa where forecast highs in the mid to upper 60s will be
within a couple degrees of some records. Dry conditions will come to
an end Monday as a low pressure system passes north of the state and
brings with it a surge of moisture. A few rumbles of thunder will be
likely with the showers as well. By the end of the week, another low
pressure system is anticipated to traverse the state, bringing with it
colder, albeit closer to normal, temperatures and the possibility of
some snow.
