Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
526 PM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

While the fog of the last few days has stayed away today, it remained
a pretty dreary day with lots of cloud cover. Temperatures as a result
remained mild and relatively unchanged in the mid to upper 30s. Even
early this evening, temperatures remained within a couple of degrees
of daytime highs.

The main story continues to be the winter storm that is slated to move
across northern Iowa beginning tomorrow and into Wednesday. While much
of the state will at least see snow in the air at times, northern Iowa
will see the most snow stick with highs generally around or just below
freezing. Further south, temperatures will warm enough to introduce a
rain snow mix or periods of all rain instead of snow. Upwards of a
widespread 6 to 9 inches may fall across northern Iowa, quickly
reducing to a couple of inches or less by Highway 30 and then an inch
or less souther of Highway 30. Also of concern will be gusty winds on
Wednesday as the system begins to move out. Many areas will see wind
gusts around 30 mph or more, resulting in hazardous travel especially
up north where blowing snow will also be a concern.

Conditions dry out to end the week and through the weekend, but will
be accompanied by colder temperatures as well. Expect highs primarily
in the 20s and lows in the teens to low 20s.
