Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
520 PM CDT Mon Apr 16 2018

Another cold day across Iowa, reminiscent of winter rather than mid
April. Temperatures this afternoon only managed to reach the upper 20s
to low 30s north, mid 30s across central Iowa, and low 40s south.
clouds persisted across central and eastern Iowa, while western Iowa
saw more sunshine afternoon. Winds today were generally out of the
northwest at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts over 20 at times.

Overnight temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s, with winds
easing some after midnight. Tuesday temperatures will be in the upper
30s to 40s north and low 50s south. Late Tuesday night through
Wednesday a quick moving system will impact the area, bringing chances
for moderate snowfall and ice accumulation across northern Iowa, with
rain for central and southern Iowa. This round of wintry
precipitation will likely cause hazardous driving conditions
throughout the day on Wednesday for northern Iowa. The system will
exit the area Wednesday evening, however temperatures through the end
of the week are expected to remain well below average with highs in
the 30s and 40s. Some warming will occur by the end of the week and
into the weekend, with highs in the 40s and 50s.
