Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
517 PM CST Fri Jan 12 2018

Cold Arctic air has returned to the region in the wake of the wintry
system that crossed the Midwest on Thursday. Temperatures struggled 
to get out of the single digits across the state of Iowa today despite
most of the state seeing sunshine. Brisk northerly winds added a bite
to the air and kept wind chills in the single digits to teens below
zero. Not much change tonight as temperatures fall below zero with wind
chills ranging from 10 below to 25 below zero.

Quiet and cold conditions tomorrow as an area of high pressure slides
through the region. South winds on Sunday will help raise highs back
into the mid teens to mid 20s, however chances for light snow also
return to the forecast. Most areas will see less than an inch of
snowfall, but parts of northeast Iowa may see up to 2 inches. 

Very cold temperatures and dry conditions return for the first half 
of next week. Day time highs will likely only be in the single digits,
along with overnight and morning wind chills of 20 below zero or 
colder. Warmer conditions return by Thursday as highs get back in the
20s and 30s on Thursday. Some parts of the state may even see highs 
in the low 40s next Friday.
