Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
503 PM CST Sat Dec 10 2016

Snow moved across much of Iowa this morning into the early afternoon
hours. However, by late afternoon, the snow was mainly falling over
the the far northern and eastern counties. Otherwise, skies were
cloudy. Late afternoon temperatures were in the middle and upper teens
north to the upper 20s and lower 30s south. Southeast winds were 10 to
15 mph.

A frontal system stretches across the Dakotas into Iowa late this
afternoon. Snow will spread across northern Iowa and persist through
the night at varying levels of intensity. Further south, light snow
will fall at times but with little accumulation. The snow will push
east on Sunday, providing a break 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.
