Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1059 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

A light wintry mix of precipitation greeted Iowa this morning. With
temperatures hovering between 29 and 33 degrees, we have seen a
mixture of precipitation from light rain to light snow to freezing
rain and freezing drizzle. Much of the rain was towards southeastern
Iowa, where temperatures were the warmest in the state. Much of the
snow was towards northwestern Iowa, where temperatures have been the
coolest. Winds this morning have generally been from the east at
around 10 to 15 mph.

For the rest of today, expect the wintry mix of precipitation to
continue. In all, central Iowa, including the Des Moines metro, should
have around one tenth of an inch of ice accumulation... Northwestern
Iowa should have around 3 to 5 inches of snow. All of this
precipitation should move east of the area by around midnight tonight.
Winds will be decreasing throughout today to the 5 to 10 mph range.

For the rest of the week, some sunshine will return tomorrow.
Temperatures will be near normal, with highs near 40 along Interstate
80, and the low 30s in northern Iowa. Things should get much warmer
the rest of the week as highs make it into the low to mid 50s. The
next best chance for precipitation and strong winds comes Wednesday
into Thursday.
