Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
336 AM CST Sun Dec 4 2016

Light to moderate snow slowly spread southwest to northeast across
Iowa overnight. With air and road temperatures just above freezing in
many areas, some of this melted initially but still resulted in
anywhere from a dusting to three inches of snow on vegetation. The
higher end of that range fell toward Council Bluffs. Even with some
melting, many roads from southwest to northeast Iowa were still snow
covered in spots heading toward daybreak. Temperatures were fairly
uniform because of the clouds and precipitation with early morning
readings in the 30s and south to southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph.

The precipitation will remain snow through the morning over northern
Iowa with rain or snow possible from central Iowa south and east into
Missouri and Illinois. Snowfall amounts will peak from northeast Iowa
into adjacent areas of Wisconsin and Illinois where Winter Weather
Advisories remain in effect and amounts may reach three to four

The precipitation should end by afternoon with the main weather story
turning to much colder temperatures. After a mild day Monday
temperatures will drop into midweek with highs no better than the
teens and lower 20s across the region and lows from 5 to 15 above.
