Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
500 PM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Mainly clear skies are present across Iowa late this afternoon
with a few clouds across the far south/southeastern portion of
the state. A few sprinkles have been observed in far southern
Iowa as well during the afternoon hours. Late afternoon temperatures
range from the lower 30s in northern Iowa to the upper 40s across
southern Iowa. Winds are generally westerly at around 5 to 10 mph.
A few sites across southeastern Iowa have some gusts to around 15 to
20 mph.

High pressure will remain across Iowa tonight with some patchy fog
possible, especially across northern Iowa where snow remains on
the ground. Westerly upper level flow will transition to southwesterly
upper level flow into Monday as a trough digs into the western US.
As this trough moves east into Tuesday, an associated area of surface
low pressure will move through the region bringing chances for
precipitation. Rain chances will begin late Monday night with
a chance for some showers and isolated thunderstorms across portions
of the state. A light wintry mix may occur across far northern Iowa
toward sunrise Tuesday, with all rain chances expected for much of
Tuesday. As precipitation moves out of the area Tuesday night, the
rain could mix with or change to some light snow. Little or no
accumulations are expected. Mainly dry conditions are then in place
for the remainder of the week.
