Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
535 PM CDT Mon Apr 17 2017

It was a gorgeous day across the state with only a few fair weather
clouds making an appearance across central Iowa. Temperatures were
able to reach into the mid and upper 60s across northern Iowa and low
to mid 70s across all other areas. Winds were also quite comfortable
with speeds predominantly under 10 mph and out of the south to
southeast. As of early this evening, skies remained clear to mostly
clear and temperatures remained within a degree or two of daytime

Unfortunately, the quite and very pleasant conditions will vacate the
region for the rest of the week due to a few low pressure systems. The
first of which will move across northern Minnesota Tuesday and bring
showers and a few storms down through Iowa and parts of Nebraska,
Kansas and Missouri. The second system, on Wednesday, may be more
impactful from both a storm and total precipitation perspective with
the low pressure system slate to track right across Iowa. The result
will likely be a large amount of rain for northern areas and the
potential for some severe storms to the south. While the end of the
week should be dry, it will be chilly compared to today with northerly
winds bringing in cooler temperatures. Highs to end the week will
likely remain in the mid to upper 50s.
