Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
453 AM CST Mon Nov 28 2016

Drier air moved into Western Iowa overnight. The result was a clearing
sky and some pretty strong wind gusts. Along the leading edge of the
clearing the wind was South at 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph. A
few gusts even exceeded 50 mph. The wind won`t be quite as strong
today but breezy conditions will still exist. Across the East low
clouds and drizzle were common. Temperatures overnight slowly rose
into the mid 40`s to mid 50`s on the Southerly winds.

A slow moving low pressure system will meander across the Northern
Plains and Upper Midwest bringing periodic chances for precipitation
to the region. Today the low is to the West of the area so warm
temperatures are expected. A weak cold front will pass through the
region today switching winds from the South to the Southwest. Showers
and even some isolated storms may accompany the frontal passage.
Tonight and Tuesday temperatures will be slightly cooler but not
much different with highs today in the 40`s and 50`s and highs on
Tuesday in the 40`s. The upper low will then meander across Minnesota
into the Great Lakes region by Wednesday night. As this upper low
passes it will bring down progressively colder air. Highs by Friday
will be normal for this time of year in the 30`s. Precip chances will
continue across mainly Northern Iowa and locations North from Tuesday
into Wednesday associated with the upper low. Precipitation during the
night and early morning hours will likely be snow or a mix of rain and
snow but any accumulations will be light. The rest of the week looks
dry with seasonal temperatures.
