Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
547 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2018

After an eventful morning for many across the state with bouts of
freezing rain, sleet, thunder, and even light snow, everything slowly
pushed east throughout the day. By early this evening all of the
notable precipitation had moved east of the state, but a few flurries
remained. Northwest winds kept temperatures cold throughout the day
as well with temperatures ranging from the low teens to the mid 20s in
most cases this evening.

Wednesday will be a quiet, cold day. The sun will make an extended
appearance, only to see clouds moving in from the south through the
evening. Temperatures will struggle to reach freezing anywhere in the
state, with most locations will range from the low to mid 20s.
Thursday unfortunately looks to bring about another round of wintry
precipitation, including the potential for some more freezing rain.
With temperatures a few degrees warmer, roughly the southern third of
the state will see precipitation transition from snow to freezing rain
to rain, while areas further north will be stuck with snow to freezing

The weekend looks to warm up a bit into the 30s to lower 40s, but
areas of northern and northwest Iowa will continue to battle snow
opportunities, while areas further south and east will see
predominantly rain Friday night through Saturday.
