Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
503 PM CDT Mon Aug 21 2017

Our next round of showers and storms were marched through northern
Iowa this afternoon, bringing additional rainfall to some areas that
saw heavy rainfall last night. Some minor flooding was reported, but
the progressive nature of the rainfall has alleviated most flooding
concerns. Further south skies were partly to mostly cloudy through the
afternoon. The cloud cover limited the degree of warming today with
most locations in the 70s to low 80s.

Showers and thunderstorms will push south and east across the state
this evening and into the overnight hours. Some storms may be strong
to severe with small hail and gusty winds, but widespread severe
weather is not likely. A cold front will sweep through by Tuesday
morning, which will bring much drier conditions to the region. Expect
a dry forecast with temperatures running a few degrees below normal
through the rest of the work week.
