Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
504 PM CDT Mon Aug 14 2017

Conditions have dried out after areas of showers and storms moved
through parts of Iowa this morning and early afternoon. The air is
noticeably more humid as low level moisture has returned northward
into the Upper Midwest. Isolated storms are possible this evening in
far south central and southeast Iowa, but most of the state will stay
dry. Areas of fog will develop in north central and northeast Iowa
after midnight, continuing into Tuesday morning.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms increase later in the day
tomorrow. The best chances for precipitation come Tuesday night into
Wednesday as a front slowly sweeps across the state. It is likely that
much of the state will see some rainfall from this system, although
exact amounts remain uncertain at this time. The risk for severe
weather will be low.

Dry conditions return Thursday, but chances for isolated showers and
storms round out the end of the week. Looking ahead to the solar
eclipse on Monday, there is the potential for cloud cover and shower
and thunderstorms as a system crosses the central tier of the country.
However, it is still much to early to pinpoint the timing and extent
of any cloud cover. Stay tuned through the week as the eclipse
forecast becomes more certain.
