Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
427 PM CDT Fri Oct 28 2016

End of June temperatures visited Iowa for the end of October as
temperatures made it into the mid 70s across northern Iowa to the low
80s across central to southwestern Iowa. With high pressure across
the southeastern United States and a low pressure system along the
Minnesota Canada border, Iowa was sandwiched in southwesterly flow. At
4 pm, the temperature in Des Moines was 81 degrees, it was 75 in
Waterloo, and the temperature in 82 degrees. Winds on Friday afternoon
were on the stronger side...generally blowing from the south to
southwest at 15 to 25 mph, with gusts nearing 30 mph.

During the day Saturday, a frontal boundary will push across the
upper Midwest from northwest to southeast. This will lead to a notable
temperature gradient across the state of Iowa for Saturday as highs in
the southern portion of the state will be in the mid 70s to low 80s,
and highs in the northern to northwestern portion of the state will be
in the upper 50s to low 60s. Winds behind the front will be from the
north at 10 to 15 mph. There are very slight rain chances primarily
across northern to northeastern Iowa Saturday evening into Sunday

For Sunday into next week, high pressure will move across the region
which will bring back sunshine and keep daytime temperatures in the
60s to low 70s, and morning temperatures in the 40s to low 50s which
is slightly above normal for this time of year. The next best chance
for widespread precipitation is not until later next week.
