Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1119 AM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

Temperatures are trending the right direction, for once, but not
before another chilly to cold morning that included a couple of low
temperature records. Mason City and Waterloo broke low temperature
records this morning, hitting 17 and 21 respectively, while Ottumwa
tied their record low for today at 27 degrees. Elsewhere in the state,
lows ranged from the upper teens across the snowy north to the mid 20s
and lower 30s in the snow free areas. Thanks to periods of sunshine
and southerly winds, temperatures rose nicely this morning into the
upper 40s to mid 50s in many spots, but again in the snow free areas.

Looking ahead, temperatures will continue to trend in the right
direction with highs in the 50s to low 60s by Sunday. The beginning of
the work week also looks pleasant with highs in the upper 50s to mid
60s expected. Other than a few light rain chances across the far west
and south tonight and into Saturday, the next widespread rain
potential does not look to come until mid-week next week.
