Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
554 PM CST Sun Nov 19 2017

For the most part, it was hard to complain too much about the day
today. Other than being a little breezy, the winds were at least out
of the southwest and skies were clear to go along with highs ranging
from the mid 50s out west to the mid and upper 30s to the east. By
early this evening, some high level clouds were making their way into
the state from the northwest, but remained otherwise relatively
pleasant given the time of the year.

With southerly wind sticking around overnight, lows will only dip into
the upper 20s to low 30s versus the teens and lower 20s this morning.
As has been mentioned over the last few days, Thanksgiving week will
be a dry one across the state, but temperatures will bounce around a
bit. Monday will be on the warm side with highs in the 50s to even a
few spotty low 60s in the southwest. That will be quickly followed by
a cold front a cooler days in the 30s to low 40s Tuesday and
Wednesday. Which in turn will be followed by another brief warm up,
pushing highs into the 40s and low 50s Thursday and 50s to low 60s
Friday. Then yet another cool down for the weekend, dropping highs
into the 30s to low 40s.

While there should not be any hazardous travel weather when it comes
to rain or snow, there will be periods of breezy conditions that may
make driving a bit difficult at times. Namely Monday out of the
southwest and Tuesday out of the northwest. Each day will likely see
sustained winds to 20 mph or more, with Tuesday shaping up to be the
windiest of the two days.
