Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
455 PM CDT MON MAY 23 2016

Scattered showers and thunderstorms were over portions of western
and northern Iowa this afternoon with patchy light showers over
parts of central and south central Iowa. High temperatures were in
the lower 80s east to lower and middle 70s west. South to
southwest winds were 10 to 20 mph with occasional stronger gusts.

A frontal boundary stretches from northern Minnesota and then
south in to the central plains of Nebraska and Kansas. Showers and
thunderstorms return to the forecast with the arrival of this
frontal boundary this week. In addition, a more summer like pattern
develops over the Midwest. Persistent south winds will allow a
warm and humid air mass to move into the region with highs in the
70s and 80s expected. This increase in moisture will result in
intermittent chances for showers and thunderstorms for much of
the upcoming work week. Several episodes of severe weather are
also possible beginning today along with areas of heavy rainfall.
