Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1037 AM CDT Mon May 22 2017

Sunshine! Well, at least some residents of western and southeast Iowa
saw sunshine to start the day, whereas the rest of the state battled
clouds and even a bit of rain. Morning lows were generally mild in the
mid to upper 40s, but northeast Iowa remained on the chilly side with
pockets in the upper 30s. Winds this morning were also on the lighter
side compared to yesterday, with southwesterly winds dominating in the
10 to 15 mph range. Temperatures had already risen nicely as well with
most locations residing in the upper 50s to low 60s, well on their way
to highs around 70.

While many would like a few days of dry weather to get out into fields
or mow lawns, unfortunately periods of showers and storms will move
through the region this evening, Tuesday, and Friday. Otherwise, the
middle of the week does look to be on the dry side with periods of
sunshine. After the pleasant rebound of highs into the upper 60s and
lower 70s today, a quick hitting cold front will move through and drop
highs into the 50s and lower 60s Tuesday and low to mid 60s Wednesday
before returning back into the 70s to end the week.
