Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
404 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016
It has been cloudy and rainy across the region overnight, with showers
and thunderstorms affecting most of Iowa and producing locally heavy
rainfall mainly across the north and up into Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Temperatures have steadied in the lower 40s north to 60s southwest,
with variable winds ahead of a low pressure center moving from
Nebraska into Iowa.
As the low pressure crosses the region today showers and storms will
clear out to the east, with northwest winds bringing in cooler air by
tonight. Skies will remain mostly cloudy as well. The clouds will
clear out by Thursday and warmer temperatures will return for the end
of the week. The peak will be on Friday when southwest winds will push
afternoon temperatures well into the 70s and perhaps even lower 80s
in southern Iowa. The weekend will be a bit cooler, but still near or
above normal with highs Saturday in the 60s to lower 70s and Sunday in
the upper 50s to mid 60s. After today, no appreciable rain chances
are forecast through at least the early part of next week.
