Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
231 PM CDT Fri Sep 23 2016

Heavy rains developed once again over portions of Iowa last
night. One location heavily impacted was Ames where over 5 inches
of rain occurred. This left many roads flooded with many cars
becoming stranded in the deep water. In addition, many of the
locations in northern Iowa that saw heavy rain on Wednesday night
received more rain. While the rainfall amounts were not as high
overnight, it did renew flooding in some of the areas. Otherwise,
much of southern and western Iowa had quiet weather overnight as
low temperatures remained well above normal. Temperatures during
the night ranged from the mid 60s in the north to the lower 70s
across the south.

Storms will gradually end across Iowa this morning and surrounding
areas as warmer air begins to spread back north into the upper
Midwest. Temperatures will be well above normal from Iowa today
into Saturday as an unseasonably warm and humid airmass remains in
place across the Region. The main focus for storms later today
into tonight will be in the high Plains near a boundary moving
through the Rockies. This front will push east through the Plains
on Saturday and into Iowa by Saturday night. This will bring
another round of rain to much of Iowa from late Saturday into
early Sunday. However, this should end the threat of rainfall for
a while as drier and cooler air push into the region for much of
next week.
