Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
414 AM CDT Wed Mar 14 2018

It has been another cool and quiet night across the region. Light and
variable winds have come around to southwest at 10 mph or less across
Iowa beneath nearly clear skies. Temperatures have fallen into the
upper teens to mid 20s.

Today will be sunny, mild and breezy, with temperatures peaking in
the low to mid 60s across about the southwest half of Iowa. A cool
front moving southward across the region this afternoon into tonight
will ensure that today is the warmest day of the week however.
Thursday will be mostly sunny again but temperatures will peak only in
the 40s to lower 50s in most areas, then precipitation will spread
across Iowa from southwest to northeast between Thursday night and
Friday night. Some of the precipitation will come in the form of a
wintry mix on Friday morning before changing to rain, with snow
chances lingering in northwest Iowa Friday afternoon, then a wintry
mix will return on Friday night before precipitation ends. While
amounts will be light, this could result in periods of slick travel
conditions for some areas, but the details remain unclear at this
time. Those traveling between Thursday night and Friday night should
monitor the latest forecast updates. Rain and snow chances will
return once again around Monday or Monday night of next week.
