Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1121 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

Blustery and cool conditions have overspread much of the state of Iowa
this morning, in the wake of a strong cold front slowly moving through
the Upper Mississippi Valley. Temperatures ranged from just above
freezing in northwest Iowa, to the upper 40s and low 50s in the far
eastern portions of the state. The cloud cover and breezy northwest
winds were making the air feel several degrees cooler. A few light
showers moved through this morning, mainly over areas east of
Interstate 35. Cool conditions will continue through the day, with
more rain showers possible in southeastern Iowa late in the day.

An active pattern sets up through the next 5 days, which will keep
temperatures below normal and chances for rainfall in the forecast.
The best chances for widespread rainfall will be this weekend. Much
of the state may see 1 to 2 inches of rain, in addition to cold
blustery conditions. The potential is also there to see some
snowflakes in northwest and north central Iowa late Saturday through
Sunday night, although accumulations and impacts to travel remain
uncertain at this time.

The storm system will push east of the area on Monday as highs begin a
recovery back into the 50s and 60s, just before another round of
rainfall and cooler weather possibly moves in for the middle of next
