Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
526 PM CST Thu Dec 1 2016

Cloudy skies continued to blanket the region throughout Thursday
afternoon. For yet another day, the clouds prevented temperatures from
warming up very much. Normal highs for this time of year are in the
upper 30s. High temperatures for thursday topped out generally in the
mid 30s...or a few degrees below normal. At 5 pm, the temperature in
Des Moines was 37, it was 36 in Waterloo, and the temperature in Mason
City was 34 degrees. Winds were from the west to northwest at around
10 to 15 mph.

For Friday into this weekend, there may be a few breaks in the clouds
as the area of low pressure largely responsible for the clouds over
the past few days gradually shifts into the northeast. Temperatures
will climb back into the 40s for Friday and the weekend. A quick
moving system may bring a light rain ans snow mix to Iowa Sunday
morning. Otherwise, it should be dry until the middle of next week. A
sizable area of low pressure may bring accumulating snow and strong
winds to the region. At this time, confidence is too low to be
specific with projected amounts and timing. Temperatures will likely
be below normal from the middle of next week and beyond.
