Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
512 PM CST Sun Feb 25 2018

After another active week of cool wintry weather, Sunday has been much
quieter with plentiful sunshine over much of the region. Temperatures
across the state of Iowa were highly dependent on snow cover. Those in
southern and eastern tiers of the state without any snow on the ground
saw temperatures rise into the 40s and 50s, while those further to the
north and west where held back in the 20s and 30s due to the fresh
snow cover. Quiet conditions will continue into the overnight with
lows in the teens and 20s.

A warming trend will continue through the first half of the week,
which will help melt quite a bit of the snow over northwest Iowa.
Chances for precipitation will be on the up tick by mid to late day
Wednesday and continue into early Thursday as a strong low pressure
system crosses into the Midwest. Widespread rain and possibly some
snow is likely, along with blustery northwest winds.

A return to quieter weather and warming temperatures are expected late
in the week as high pressure builds over the region.
