Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
455 PM CST Thu Nov 23 2017

A pleasant Thanksgiving Day was seen across much of the Plains today
with plentiful sunshine and warmer temperatures. Highs across the
state of Iowa this afternoon ranged from the mid 40s in the eastern
tier of the state, to the low 60s in some locations along the Missouri
River in western Iowa. Even warmer temperatures are expected tomorrow
in the presence of breezy southerly winds. Highs across the state will
range from the upper 50s to upper 60s. Some spots may see new record
high temperatures.

A weak cold front will track southeast across the state late Friday,
which will set temperatures back a few degrees for the weekend with
highs in the 40s and 50s. Another unseasonably warm day for late
November looks likely for Monday as highs return to the 50s and 60s.
Cooler high pressure takes over for the middle and latter half of next
week, which will bring our temperatures back closer to average. The
forecast is dry through the next 7 days as dry air inhibits any
foreseeable chances for precipitation.
