Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
502 PM CST Thu Feb 15 2018

Increasing cloud cover and a switch to northerly winds were seen this
afternoon as a cold front pushed south through the state. While above
normal temperatures were still observed at many locations today,
increasing winds and falling temperatures this evening and overnight
will make it feel much colder, and serve as a little reminder that
winter is still the season. Friday morning will be quite cold with
much of the state seeing wind chill values in the single digits and
teens below zero. Lucky for us, this cold snap will be short lived as
southerly winds return by Saturday. This will warm temperatures back
into the 30s and 40s by the weekend and continue to melt the dwindling
snow pack.

Our next chance for widespread precipitation will arrive early next
week as a cold front approaches the area. The front will likely stall
over the state, which may lead to significant temperature differences
on either side of the front. Rain, snow, and possibly even some
freezing drizzle or freezing rain may be seen Monday and into
Tuesday. The best chance to see wintry precipitation looks to be in
the cooler air across northern Iowa.
