Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
603 PM CDT SAT MAY 28 2016

It was an up and down day for much of the state thanks to
scattered showers and storms. Fortunately, few storms were severe
today through the early evening hours, and were more of a nuisancewith
periods of heavy rainfall, small hail, and lightning. Otherwise,
highs were a bit on the cooler side today thanks to the periodic
cloud cover and storms, only reaching the low to mid 70s in all
but eastern Iowa where more sunshine allowed temperatures to reach
the upper 70s and low 80s. As of early this evening, the bulk of
the storms resided in northern Iowa, though scattered showers
remained through much of the rest of the state.

As the low pressure system responsible for the current storms
continues to move northeast, shower and storm activity will taper
off through the evening and overnight. The result will be a mostly
comfortable Sunday with highs in the low 80s and small chance for
scattered showers in southwest Iowa. Memorial Day will see a
chance for showers and storms by the afternoon and evening along
with highs remaining in the low 80s. Tuesday will similar to
Memorial Day with highs around 80 and an opportunity for some
showers and storms. From Wednesday and on through the week winds
will shift out of the northwest, dropping highs down into the low
to mid 70s.
