WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
510 AM CST Thu Jan 12 2017

A band of snow moved across central Iowa overnight and brought light
snow accumulations to that portion of the state. A few thunderstorms
moved over southeast Iowa between 2 and 4 a.m. this morning and
brought a wintry mix to that area including freezing rain and icy road
conditions. Low temperatures were in the single digits north to the
upper teens south. The wind was from the north at 5 to 15 mph.

The precipitation will end this morning as Arctic high pressure
settles into the Northern Plains. Cold conditions are forecast
overnight with low temperatures well below zero from northern Iowa and
into Minnesota. Wind chill values by the morning will drop to 20 below
or lower across these areas. Light freezing rain is possible Friday
night into Saturday south of Interstate 80 with moderate ice
accumulations possible through Missouri and Kansas. The main weather
maker is expected Sunday afternoon through Monday, where the potential
for snow, freezing rain, and rain will exist. Travel conditions later
Sunday through early Monday could be very hazardous at times and
forecasts should be monitored closely.
