Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1110 AM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

The weather across Iowa slowly quieted down overnight and into this
morning. The fresh snow pack kept temperatures cold overnight with
lows in the upper teens to low 20s. A handful of locations reported 14
inches of snow in northwest Iowa with the weekend winter weather
event. Wind gusts as high as 60 miles per hour were recorded at other
locations. Late into this morning, skies were mostly clear across the
state. The sunshine has helped to fight some of the cold but still
struggling against the snow pack, with temperatures this late morning
in the mid to upper 20s. Doppler radar was finally quiet across Iowa.

Skies across the Plains and Midwest have been mostly clear. The snow
pack across the region is rather impressive from visible satellite
imagery. Temperatures in Nebraska and South Dakota have been in the
mid to upper 20s. Minnesota is the cold spot in the region, with
temperatures still in the upper teens only by this late morning.
Kansas and Missouri are the warmer spots with temperatures in the mid

Today will be quiet but still rather cool across Iowa. Sunshine will
help to boost temperatures a little bit and begin to promote some
melting. Highs in northern Iowa with a deep snowpack will be in the
mid 30s. Central and southern Iowa will likely see low to mid 40s this
afternoon. Skies overall should remain clear. This evening
temperatures will drop back down into the 20s. Quiet conditions will
continue for most of the day on Tuesday. High temperatures will range
from the upper 30s in northern Iowa, with mid 50s likely in southern
Iowa. Another system will be moving through the area midweek. It will
enter in late Tuesday night, and pass through quickly during the day
on Wednesday. This will bring accumulating snow once again to
northwest Iowa, preventing Spring from occurring. This will likely
have travel impacts across northwest and northern Iowa in the middle
of this week.
