Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
516 PM CST Wed Feb 14 2018

The snow pack across the state took a hit this afternoon as
temperatures pushed above normal levels for mid February. Highs ranged
from the low 40s in northern Iowa to the low 50s in the south. The
snow held back our temperatures from an even warmer day, as areas just
to our south with no snow on the ground were well into the 50s and
60s. Areas of fog are expected to develop tonight, especially in the
southern and eastern tiers of the state. Lows will be quite mild in
the mid 20s to low 40s.

A cold front sweeping across the region tomorrow will bring blustery
northwest winds and colder temperatures. The cool air will hang around
for Friday with below normal temperatures likely. Southerly winds
return for the weekend which will push highs back into the 30s and
40s, which will do more work on eliminating our snow cover. Chances
for rain and snow increase early next week, but at this time any
significant wintry weather does not look likely through the next 7
