Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
507 AM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Although there was no precipitation, sky conditions varied quite a
bit across Iowa early this morning as low cloudiness developed through
the heart of the state. Farther southwest and northeast skies
remained mostly clear. Early morning temperatures varied greatly as
well with readings from the middle 50s far east to the lower 70s
central and west. Winds were generally east or southeast at 5 to 10

The main weather theme through the week will be building heat and
humidity. An extended period with highs in the 90s can be anticipated
from central Iowa farther south and west into Nebraska and Missouri.
Heat indices will often reach 100 degrees in these areas with the
worst conditions starting Wednesday when the peak afternoon heat
index may reach 100 to 110 degrees. Farther north and east the heat
may not be quite as oppressive with intermittent chances for
thunderstorms starting Tuesday.
