Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
420 AM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

Areas of light rain were noted south of the highway 20 corridor
overnight. Locations north of highway 20 saw clearing skies and cooler
temperatures. At 4 AM a couple of locations started reporting a
wintery mix of precipitation as the precip was ending. This was likely
due to the colder air across the north pushing in. Temperatures at 4
AM ranged from the 25 to 30 across the northwest with mid to upper 30s
elsewhere except for the southwest where lower 40s were noted. A
light north wind was common across the state.

An upper level system will pass to the east over most locations by
noon. This will not only bring an end to the precipitation across the
region but it will also bring in a clearing sky and cool temperatures.

Late tonight winds will switch back to the south bringing warmer
temperatures back to the region with highs near normal across the
Upper Midwest for much of the upcoming week. After highs today in the
30s and 40s, expect about a 10 degree rise in the range of high
temperatures for the rest of the week. We will have one more night of
cold as well with lows by Monday morning in the 20s but 30s and 40s
are expected the rest of the week. A couple of weather systems will
affect the area with rain chances coming back into the picture Tuesday
and again late Thursday into Friday. The Tuesday system may even bring
with it a few rumbles of thunder to locations south and east.
