The temperature in Des Moines should stay at 32 degrees or warmer through Friday

After a slick, gray and at times rainy day across much of the state, we'll see another bout of moisture early Wednesday morning. Interactive Radar | Weather Alerts Precipitation will move into southern Iowa around 2 a.m. Wednesday, then spread to the northeast for the first half of the day. Once again, south/eastern Iowa will get the most moisture, and things should be done by lunchtime. One change starting Tuesday is that almost all of that precipitation should be liquid, thanks to above-freezing temperatures in the atmosphere. Our surface temperatures will be near 32 degrees, so some icing is still possible. Once the rain comes tomorrow morning, we will remain with clouds and fog for the rest of the day. Temperatures will be in the mid 30s, and so far, it doesn't look like we'll drop below 32 again until Friday. Scattered light rain is likely at times from Wednesday night to Thursday, then some patchy rain on Friday. The cover will last until the weekend. Next week will bring more sunshine, then a big warm-up period as February begins.
