Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
626 PM CDT Mon Mar 12 2018

For most of the state, it was a fairly enjoyable day. The sun was out,
winds were not over powering, and temperatures got into the 40s. Those
across northern Iowa may beg to differ though. While the sun was
plentiful there as well, some remaining snow cover helped prevent
temperatures from getting into the 40s, instead relegating northern
Iowa to the mid 30s. By early this evening, conditions had not changed
much with only high clouds beginning to move in across western Iowa
and temperatures within a couple degrees of their daytime highs.

Warmer temperatures are just on the horizon, but before that
northerly winds will keep the state cool tomorrow with highs even a
couple degrees cooler than today. Fortunately, at least the sun should
be out much of the day. Warmer temperatures will begin to move into
Iowa Wednesday morning as winds quickly turn southerly and breezy.
Southwest Iowa will benefit the most with highs in the low 60s, while
northern areas will even surge into the mid 40s. The remainder of the
week and into the weekend, temperatures will bounce a bit, but
predominantly will be on the cool to spring like side with highs
ranging from around 40 to the 50s in most cases. Holding temperatures
back, especially Friday, will be cloud cover and precipitation chances
that move through Friday into Saturday. Fortunately, mostly rain is
expected with snow only possible during the colder overnight hours.
