Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
449 PM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

Cool and blustery conditions were seen across the Upper Midwest today
in the wake of a strong cold front that moved through the area last
night. Afternoon high temperatures in the state of Iowa were only in
the upper 20s to low 40s. Northwest winds were strongest during the
late morning and early afternoon hours. Some parts of northern Iowa
saw gusts in excess of 40 to 45 mph, while elsewhere gusts were in the
30 to 40 mph range. A chilly night is in store as high pressure moves
in and winds subside. Expect widespread lows in the teens and even a
few readings in the single digits possible.

Dry weather continues through the rest of the week as our next warm up
begins. Thanksgiving will feature plentiful sunshine with highs in the
40s and 50s. Friday will be even warmer as temperatures push into the
50s and 60s, but our next surge of cold air arrives late in the day
which will keep temperatures on the cool side through the weekend.
