Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
501 PM CDT Thu Apr 19 2018

High pressure and widespread sunshine led to a nice day across the
region, a welcome sight after cold and unsettled conditions over the
past week. While temperatures were still below normal for mid April,
it still probably felt quite pleasant outside considering the the
chilly air our area has seen for the last several weeks. Highs this
afternoon ranged from the 50s in southern Iowa, to the upper 30s and
low 40s over the snow pack up north. Areas of fog may develop over the
melting snow pack tonight as temperatures cool off considerably under
mostly clear skies. Lows will range from the upper teens in the north
to the low 30s south.

Much of the same is expected Friday and into Saturday as highs remain
in the 50s, but still in the 40s in areas with melting snow cover.
Near normal temperatures finally return to the forecast early next
week as highs warm into the 50s and 60s across the state. Chances for
light rain sweep through Tuesday into Tuesday night, but otherwise
most of the 7 day forecast is dry.
