Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
523 PM CDT Sun Mar 11 2018

Did you sleep in this morning? Unless you went to be earlier than
normal, you probably did with daylight saving jumping everyone forward
an hour last night. Overnight as snow winded down over northern Iowa,
an area of snow moved across parts of central and southern Iowa. It
was a relatively narrow band that resulted in around an inch in the
Des Moines area and up to 4 and a half inches down around the
Centerville area. Otherwise, the day was not too bad with sunshine
making appearances at time and highs ranging from the mid 30s in the
northwest to the mid 40s in the southeast.

The new work week will start out with a couple of days around to a bit
below normal with highs in the 30s to mid 40s. Tuesday will be the
coolest day with highs predominantly in the 30s. Fortunately, warmer
temperatures will move into the state by mid-week and continue into
the weekend. By Thursday, highs will predominantly reside in the 50s
to mid 60s, with only parts of far northern Iowa possibly remaining in
the upper 40s. Those spring temperatures will continue through the
weekend. A few showers may make an appearance Friday, but the best
opportunity for any precipitation does not look to move through until
Sunday for the time being.
