Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
507 PM CST Wed Dec 7 2016

A large upper level low pressure located over the Great Lakes and
Ontario brought blustery west to northwest winds over much of the
region early this evening. At 5 PM, wind chill readings ranged in the
single digits to the middle teens above zero over Iowa, Nebraska,
northern Illinois, southeast Minnesota, and southern Wisconsin. The
coldest wind chill readings were located in eastern South Dakota and
southwest Minnesota where 5 to 10 below zero values were recorded.

Expect another shot of bitter cold temperatures tonight into Thursday
and much of the region will experience sub-zero wind chill readings
Thursday morning. Blustery northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph are likely
tonight throughout the day Thursday before gradually decreasing
Thursday evening. Saturday is the next potential for accumulating
snow across the region, mainly over northern Iowa into Minnesota,
South Dakota, and portions of Wisconsin. In this location, moderate to
locally heavy snow is possible by Saturday evening. More cold weather
is in store throughout the week next week as another Arctic blast
impacts the region.
