Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1023 AM CDT Sun Mar 18 2018

Other than eastern Iowa, fog and low clouds dominated Iowa overnight
and this morning. Overnight lows varied quite a bit as a result with
cloudy areas being held up in the low 30s and clear sky areas to the
east dipping down as far as the low 20s, though most were in the mid
20s. By mid morning, the cloud cover continued to slowly progress
eastward, leaving only far eastern Iowa under clear skies. Fog also
remained in patches across much of Iowa, with dense fog lingering from
roughly Charles City down towards Ottumwa.

Even with the cloud cover temperatures will rise into the mild,
albeit still cool, range in the 40s and even a few low 50s out east.
Temperatures Monday will also be mild, warming a bit into the mid 40s
to low 50s, before a cool down into the 30s and low 40s hits for
Tuesday. Fortunately, temperatures will quickly rebound through the
rest of the week into the 40s and 50s across Iowa. Today will remain
dry, but precipitation opportunities then skirt the western and
southern areas Monday before weakening and slowly sliding eastward
across the state Tuesday. With forecast daytime temperatures above
freezing in most spots, the best snow opportunities will be during the
cooler nighttime hours Monday night. Northern Iowa may see snow
during the daytime Tuesday though as temperatures will only peak a
couple degrees above freezing.
