Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
836 PM CDT Tue Oct 10 2017

How about that for a change in temperatures? After a relatively warm
Sunday and comfortable Monday, Tuesday greeted much of the state
rather rudely. Highs today were essentially the lows that were seen on
Sunday, residing in the mid 40s to mid 50s from west to east. As if
those temperatures were not enough, rain swept across much of the
state to the tune of a half inch to inch or more in most cases.
Northwest Iowa was spared much of the rain, generally under a tenth of
an inch. By this evening much of the rain had either moved out of the
state or dissipated, leaving behind overcast skies, chilly northerly
winds, and temperatures in the mid to upper 40s.

Fortunately, today will easily be the coldest day of the week as
temperatures will begin to warm tomorrow and peak by the latter
portion of the week in the 60s to 70s. Dry conditions will prevail
most of the remainder of the work week, but will be replaced by likely
wet conditions again this weekend. While details on amounts and exact
timing will be hammered out in the coming days, it does appear much
more likely than not that Saturday will include possible periods of
heavy rainfall and a few thunderstorms.
