Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
413 AM CDT Thu Mar 15 2018

Some high clouds were filtering into western Iowa early this morning
with a clear sky over central and eastern Iowa. There were a few light
fog patches over northern Iowa and southern Minnesota. Temperatures
were in the 20s over northern Iowa and in the Nishnabotna River Valley
with low and middle 30s elsewhere across the state. Winds were
predominately from the north and light.

A cold front is nearing the Missouri border early this morning and has
caused the light north winds over much of the state so far tonight.
However, winds will become from the east and breezy by this
afternoon and highs will be 5 to 10 degrees lower than yesterday.
Over the northern third of Iowa, this will mean temperatures near
normal with temperatures elsewhere 5 to 10 degrees above normal for
the Ides of March. Clouds will increase today into tonight as low
pressure approaches from Kansas. A wintry mix is expected to spread
over the state from southwest to northeast tonight into Friday
lasting into early Saturday morning. Light icing especially on
elevated surfaces will be possible with light snow amounts confined
primarily to northern Iowa. Temperatures will warm over the weekend
into the low 40s to low 50s by Sunday, but precipitation will return
later Sunday into Monday and Tuesday.
