Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
532 PM CST Sat Jan 20 2018

Weather across Iowa this afternoon was pleasant. Temperatures
remained above freezing, melting most of the snow pack on the ground
across the state. An area of stratiform cloud did creep northward from
Missouri along the state line, but at some point today most of the
state saw clear skies. Afternoon high temperatures were in the mid to
upper 40s. Winds were southwesterly at 10 miles per hour.

Across the rest of the Midwest, conditions have been pleasant but
changing with an approaching low pressure system developing off the
Rockies. Temperatures have been in the mid 40s, with lower 50s in
portions of Kansas.

For this evening, temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s. Areas
along and south of Interstate 80 will see drizzle, and some areas
could see freezing drizzle. Overall, this may lead to slightly
difficult travel this evening across central and southern Iowa. Warm
temperatures are in store for most of Iowa on Sunday. However, the
system currently developing off the front range will move across the
Great Plains will have substantial impact on northwestern and extreme
northern Iowa. Heavy snow is forecast for northwestern and extreme
northern Iowa Sunday night through Monday night. This will present
travel hazards due to low visibilities and poor road conditions. For
central and southern Iowa, snow accumulations will be less. However,
mixed precipitation will make for difficult to hazardous travel Sunday
night and throughout Monday.
