Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
406 AM CDT Sat Mar 17 2018

A wintry mix of precipitation prevails in the pre-dawn hours of
Saturday from west to east across central and east central Iowa.
Everything from rain, freezing rain or drizzle, ice pellets, and snow
has been observed with this band of precipitation causing slush or
snow covered roads. Where there is no precipitation there are plenty
of clouds early this morning with temperatures in the low to middle
30s across the state.

The wintry precipitation will come to an end from northwest to
southeast across the state this morning. However, plenty of low clouds
will persist over the southwestern half of Iowa. Meanwhile, an area of
high pressure will settle towards Iowa from the Dakotas allowing for a
good amount of sunshine over northeast Iowa later this morning and
afternoon. Highs today will reach into the upper 30s or low 40s,
except the middle and upper 40s over northeast Iowa with the sunshine.
Dry weather and higher temperatures in the 40s to low 50s are
expected on Sunday, though the sky will remain partly to mostly
cloudy. Primarily rain Sunday night into Monday will change to snow
Monday night before the precipitation comes to an end Tuesday as rain
or snow. Temperatures will be their lowest for the work week on
Tuesday with highs in the middle 30s to middle 40s. Temperatures will
then rise Wednesday and Thursday into the 40s and 50s before
precipitation returns to the state late in the week.
