Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
515 PM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

It was a cool day across the much of the region as an area of Canadian
high pressure settled into the Upper Midwest. After starting the
morning in the single digits and teens, afternoon high temperatures
across the state of Iowa were in the 30s to low 40s. This is about 5
to 10 degrees below average for this time of year. Southerly winds and
passing cloud cover will keep temperatures a little warmer tonight
with lows generally in the mid 20s to low 30s.

Thanksgiving Day looks quiet across the area as a warming trend
begins. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid 40s to upper 50s. Even
warmer temperatures are expected for Friday as highs top out in the
upper 50s to mid 60s. A cold front pushes through late Friday, which
will bring highs back into the 40s and 50s for the weekend. No
precipitation chances to speak of through at least the next 5 days as
a dry air mass holds over the region. An area of low pressure crossing
the Plains by the middle of next week may bring some chances for rain
or snow to the area, but forecast confidence in any precipitation is
low at this time.
