Weather Summary for Iowa

602 PM CDT Sun Aug 28 2016
Scattered, slow moving showers and thunderstorms blossomed over
the southern two thirds of Iowa this afternoon. Some of these
storms brought heavy rainfall and small hail with localized
flooding reports in northwestern Ringgold County. A small, short-
lived tornado was also reported over far northern Linn County.
Skies were cloudy in the south but mostly clear in the north with
highs topping out in the mid to upper 80s. Winds were from the
southeast at 5 to 10 mph.
Thunderstorms will gradually lessen in coverage this evening as
the sun sets. A second disturbance may lift north and fuel
additional thunderstorms over southern Iowa late tonight into
Monday. The threat for scattered showers and storms will persist
into Tuesday before a cold front pushes through. High pressure
behind the front will bring drier and cooler weather for the
middle to end of the week. Before the front arrives, highs will be
in the low to mid 80s, with readings falling into the mid to upper
70s by the end of the week.
