Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
430 AM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

A strong cold front has swept east of the state this morning with
strong, gusty winds from the northwest ushering in colder and drier
air. There have been numerous gusts between 35 and 45 mph and even a
gust to 50 mph at Boone, IA. As has been the case the last several
mornings, there are extensive clouds over the state. Temperatures are
generally in the 40s, but 50s are hanging on in the southeast quarter
of the state.

Winds will gradually decrease and skies will become mostly sunny from
west to east today. Highs will only reach the 50s in much of the
state, so it will be a rather cool day for the middle of October.
Temperatures will also drop tonight under a clear sky and light winds.
Lows Monday morning will be in the 30s with the exception of parts of
southern Iowa where temperatures will be around 40 degrees. Areas of
frost are expected to form, especially focused over northern Iowa. The
cool weather will be short-lived as temperatures will rise into the
60s and by the end of the week be in the 70s statewide. Mainly dry
weather is also expected through the end of the week as well.
