Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
535 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017

Temperatures across Iowa were considerably warmer today, with most of
the state warming into the upper 30s. The few thin clouds that passed
overhead earlier in the day have moved to the east, and a larger area
of thicker cloud cover is currently moving in from Nebraska and South

These clouds will cover much of Iowa through the evening and overnight
hours, accompanied by blustery northwest winds. Wind speeds are
expected to gust up to 30 mph at times, and will be the biggest
weather impact for the next day or so. While temperatures will only
fall into the upper 10s and low 20s tonight, fairly normal for early
December, wind chill values will quickly drop into the single digits
and even near zero in northern Iowa. Some flurries are possible over
northeastern Iowa as a nearby system slides from northern Minnesota
across Wisconsin.

Saturday will be breezy and colder than today, with highs only in the
mid 20s and partly cloudy skies. We should see a brief warm-up on
Sunday, with clearing skies and winds shifting around to the
southwest. Highs will range from the upper 40s in southwest Iowa to
the upper 30s in the northeast. Another chance of light snow for the
northeast comes along on Monday, otherwise next week will start
quietly for the rest of us.
