Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
444 AM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

A compact and potent clipper system punched across the Dakotas into
central Minnesota early this morning. It brought cloudy skies and
blustery northwest winds to 40 mph at times. Meanwhile, quiet weather
ahead of this system was found in Iowa, southern Minnesota, eastern
Nebraska, and Wisconsin. At 4 AM, temperatures ranged in the upper 20s
to the middle 30s.

Blustery northwest winds are forecast to develop late this morning and
continue throughout the day today across the region. Wind gusts as
high as 45 mph are possible across western Iowa, eastern Nebraska, and
portions of eastern South Dakota and southwest Minnesota. Some light
rain chances are possible across northern Iowa. With the strong winds,
low relative humidity, and no snow on the ground, the potential for
high fire danger exists over the region. Winds begin to decrease
around sunset tonight. Cooler weather is forecast on Tuesday before
temperatures rebound back into the 40s by Wednesday. Another round of
windy weather is anticipated by Wednesday night into Thursday.
