Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1055 AM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018

Seem like spring has finally arrived across much of the area with
only a small area of snow remaining across north central Iowa.
Overnight lows ranged from mild in the 40s to a bit chilly in the 30s,
generally following there there was overnight cloud cover.
Fortunately, with clear skies this morning, temperatures had already
soared into the mid and upper 60s across the state. Again, the lone
exception though was far north central Iowa where just a bit of snow
is hanging on, but should see most of its demise today.

Today should shape up as one of the, if not the nicest day of the
spring to date. While that is not saying much given the cold and snow
so far this spring, today will be a great day. Highs will top out in
the low to mid 70s in all but northern Iowa, though they will see at
least 60s. Sunshine will be ample, and winds will be light and
pleasant out of the east.

Even with a slight cool down over the next couple of days, conditions
will remain on the pleasant side of the spectrum. Highs will dip down
into the lower 60s through mid and end of the week, with lows
predominantly in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Really the only draw back
through the week shapes up to be a couple of light rain chances, first
across western and southern Iowa late Tuesday into Wednesday, and then
quickly across the state Thursday. The weekend then shapes up to be
quite nice with highs possibly rising back into the 70s by Saturday
and Sunday.
