Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
412 AM CST Sat Dec 10 2016

It has been a quiet night across Iowa but active weather is
approaching. Skies have been cloudy with light and variable winds. A
few flurries have been observed at times and temperatures have fallen
into the teens northeast and 20s southwest.

Snow will spread across northern Iowa today and persist through the
night at varying levels of intensity. Moderate to heavy accumulations
are likely in this area. Further south, light snow will fall at times
but with little accumulation. The snow will push off to the east on
Sunday, providing a brief respite through Monday. A strong arctic
front will then sweep across the region on Monday night, bringing
some light snow showers along with gusty northwest winds that may
cause some blowing snow issues, mainly in northern Iowa. Behind this
front much colder temperatures will prevail for the remainder of the
week. From Tuesday through Friday daily high temperatures will only be
in the single digits north and teens south, while the wind chill may
approach 20 below zero at times. Snow chances will also return toward
the end of the week.
