Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
434 PM CST Sat Feb 16 2019

Late this afternoon, a mainly clear sky over the eastern part of 
Iowa had given way to clouds over the western part of the state. 
Temperatures rose about 20 to 25 degrees from their morning lows
peaking in the upper teens over northern Iowa to the middle 20s over
southern Iowa with a few spots in southeast Iowa near 30 degrees. 
Winds from the east have prevailed between 5 and 15 mph. 

Clouds will continue to spread over the rest of the state tonight 
with snow developing and quickly spreading northeastward this evening.
As snow begins, the rates will be high meaning an intense burst of 
snow with 2 to 4 inches by around midnight tonight west of I-35 and 
south of Highway 20 in Iowa. By first light Sunday, snowfall rates 
will be lowering with light snow through much of the rest of the day. 
Snow totals of at least 4 inches will be common across much of Iowa 
with a large area of 6 or more inches over parts of central and 
northern Iowa. Fortunately, the winds with this event will be light at
5 to 15 mph. After a break from the snow Monday into the first part 
of Tuesday, snow will return to the state Tuesday afternoon into 
Wednesday. Winds once again will be light limiting the blowing snow
