Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
436 AM CDT Wed Mar 21 2018

Skies have been cloudy across much of western and souther Iowa with
clear skies in the northeast and east through the early morning hours.
Winds have been light and out of the north to northwest. Early morning
temperatures range from the low to mid 20s in northeast Iowa to the
mid 30s in southwest Iowa.

Dry conditions are expected today as an area of high pressure to the
west of the state builds eastward through the state today. Clouds will
begin to diminish across the central and southern portions of the
state, with clouds expected to increase across the state again tonight
ahead of an approaching upper level wave. This system will bring
precipitation chances to the southern half of Iowa for Thursday. A
larger storm system will then impact the state for Friday into
Saturday. This system will bring widespread precipitation to the state
Friday into Saturday. Rain is expected across much of the state
Friday, with rain changing to snow across the north and northeast
into Friday night and Saturday. Locally heavy rainfall will be
possible across southern Iowa with some accumulating snowfall possible
across northern Iowa. Light to moderate accumulations are expected,
with the potential for heavy accumulations into northeast Iowa. Many
details remain uncertain so continue to monitor forecast updates
through the week if you have travel interests across northern Iowa and
Minnesota into the weekend.
