NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
554 PM CST WED FEB 3 2016

AFTER WINTER STORM AND BLIZZARD LIKE CONDITIONS FOR MUCH OF
CENTRAL AND NORTHERN IOWA YESTERDAY AND OVERNIGHT...TODAY WAS MORE
PLEASANT. WINDS REMAINED FAIRLY STRONG ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL
IOWA...LEADING TO PERIODS OF BLOWING SNOW AND HAZARDOUS TRAVEL.
AFTERNOON HIGHS TOPPED OUT IN THE UPPER TEENS ACROSS NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL IOWA WITH MID TO UPPER 20S IN PARTS OF CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN IOWA. AS OF EARLY THIS EVENING TEMPERATURES REMAINED NEAR
THEIR DAYTIME HIGHS...AND WINDS HAVE STARTED TO WEAKEN FROM
EARLIER TODAY.

LOOKING TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK...SUNSHINE AND WARMER
TEMPERATURES WILL MAKE APPEARANCES. PERIODS OF SUNSHINE WILL WORK
THROUGH THE STATE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...THOUGH PERIODS OF CLOUD
COVER WILL ALSO MOVE THROUGH. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM A COUPLE OF
DEGREES EACH DAY...EVENTUALLY TOPPING OUT SUNDAY IN THE MID 30S
ACROSS NORTHERN IOWA AND UP TO THE LOW AND MID 40S IN SOUTHERN
IOWA. UNFORTUNATELY...A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE STATE
SUNDAY...DROPPING HIGHS EARLY NEXT WEEK BACK INTO THE 20S AND
TEENS.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRECIPITATION ARE FAIRLY LOW OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS. NORTHERN AND CENTRAL IOWA MAY SEE SOME LIGHT SNOW
FRIDAY...RESULTING IN AN INCH OR LESS OF NEW SNOW. THE BEST
OPPORTUNITY FOR WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION WILL BE SUNDAY AS THE
FRONT PUSHES THROUGH...RESULTING IN RAIN FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL
AND SOUTHERN IOWA BEFORE SWITCHING TO SNOW.
