Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
537 PM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

While temperatures were once again quite nice with highs in the 7-s
across most of the state, gusty winds made the day a bit more
difficult to enjoy. How gusty were the winds? At one point or another,
gusts exceeded 30 mph throughout Iowa, with a few locations even
briefly touching north of 40 mph. As of early this evening, not much
had changed from peak conditions during the day, with highs ranging
mostly from the low to mid 70s and gusts still approaching 30 mph in
many locations. A few showers will continue to move across northwest
and northern Iowa, but should not amount to anything more than an
occasional clap of thunder and widespread showers.

The warm conditions will come to an end across the region beginning
tomorrow as cooler temperatures and multiple opportunities for showers
stroll through. Highs will still reach the 70s across the southeast
half of the region, but areas to the northwest will see highs drop
down into the 50s and 40s in many cases. Those cooler temperatures
will overtake the region by Wednesday, resulting in highs throughout
the week and weekend primarily residing in the 40s and 50s. Along with
the cooler conditions, cloud cover and multiple opportunities for
showers will move through. At this point, every day through Sunday
will see showers move through large parts of the region. Fortunately,
no severe weather, let alone much thunder, is expected with the
cool and wet conditions.
