Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
534 PM CDT Fri Oct 13 2017

The day varied quite a bit across the state. Sunshine poked through
across the northwest and southeast most of the day, with clouds
dominating in between. Highs for the day ranged from the mid 50s in
the north to near 80 in the southeast. Even some strong thunderstorms
were around parts of central and northeast Iowa today. By early this
evening, clear skies remained over the far northwest while clouds
remained and expanded over the remainder of the state. Temperatures
also remained within a couple degrees of their daytime highs.

A couple things of note over the next few days, including widespread
showers and storms tomorrow and windy and chilly conditions Sunday.
Saturday will be highlighted by another system moving across the
state, that will bring with it widespread rain that could provide an
inch or more of rain in some places and a few strong to severe storms
through central and southeast Iowa. After the Saturday system slides
through, strong northwesterly winds will replace it and help drop
temperatures down into the 50s for highs Sunday. Fortunately, the
chilly highs will quickly begin to warm to start the week, with 60s
returning by Monday and low to mid 70s creeping in through the week.
Other than the showers and storms Saturday, the forecast looks dry
through the entirety of next week.
