Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
535 PM CST Sat Nov 18 2017

For the early risers across the southeast half of Iowa, it was a
cold, windy, and rainy start to the day. A tenth to quarter inch of
rain was seen in most locations, though a couple spots did see a bit
more. With the strong northwest winds throughout the day, temperatures
understandably did not warm too much with highs only topping out in
the upper 30s to mid 40s early in the afternoon. By early this
evening, temperatures had already fallen into the upper teens to 20s

The Thanksgiving week forecast looks to be a dry one across the area,
which should make for some decent traveling. Temperatures continue to
look to roller coaster a bit, with a day of relative warmth followed
by a couple cooler days. The warm days upcoming will be Monday and
Friday, with highs in the 50s and even a few spots hitting the low 60s
possible. The cooler days, Sunday and then Tuesday through Thursday,
will see highs generally in the 30s and 40s.

For those traveling, as mentioned the forecast looks to be dry, but
winds will be breezy at times. The windiest days look to be Monday out
of the southwest and Tuesday out of the northwest prior to
Thanksgiving, then Friday out of the southwest and Saturday out of the
northwest after Thanksgiving.
