Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
512 AM CDT Mon Sep 25 2017

Clouds with periods of showers and thunderstorms entered northwest
Iowa last evening and have stayed in place through the early morning
hours. Rainfall amounts have reached a half inch to an inch in spots.
Farther southeast conditions remained dry however with partly cloudy
skies. Temperatures heading toward daybreak varied from the middle 50s
northwest in the rain to near 70 degrees far southeast. Winds had
become northerly at around 10 mph northwest, but were typically light
and variable elsewhere.

The slow moving system and associated cold front responsible for
these showers and thunderstorms will continue to advance through the
region over the next two days continuing chances for similar precipitation.
Temperatures will vary quite a bit either side of the front with highs
only making the middle 50s through the Siouxland area while highs will
top out in the upper 80s through the immediate Mississippi Valley. By
Tuesday temperatures will drop further before readings much more
typical for late September reach the entire region by Wednesday.
Conditions will dry out by that time as well with little in the way of
precipitation for the remainder of the week.
