Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1043 AM CST Tue Jan 23 2018

With precipitation having wound down overnight, winds took over as the
main player overnight. Winds immediately behind the cold front were
not tremendous, but eventually picked up to 25 to 30 mph in many cases
with gusts in excess of 35 mph. Fortunately, the cold air with this
storm system was not of the Arctic variety. Overnight lows ranged from
the upper teens across the north to around 30 in the southeast. By
late this morning, winds remained on the breezy side with many eastern
locations around 20 mph. Temperatures by late morning also remained
near their overnight lows thanks to the breezy northerly winds.

Winds will slowly ease throughout the day as the low pressure system
continues to move eastward, beginning a stretch of expected dry
conditions. Other than southern Iowa possibly seeing some light
precipitation Saturday, nothing is expected for the state through the
weekend and into early next week. Temperatures will bounce a bit, but
overall be on the warming side. Highs will rise through the end of the
week, peaking Friday in the 40s to low 50s across Iowa. A cold front
will drop temperatures for the weekend, bottoming out Sunday with
highs in the mid 20s to 30s. Temperatures will then rebound to start
the new work week, with 40s and low 50s once again possible by
