Weather Summary for Iowa

513 PM CDT Sun Apr 23 2017
A sensational afternoon was seen across the state of Iowa today,
although it was a bit breezy at times. Temperatures were in the low to
mid 70s with low humidity and mostly sunny skies. Quiet conditions
will continue tonight as temperatures fall off into the 40s.
Wind will be the main story of Monday. Southerly winds will increase
to 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph possible especially in the
western half of the state. Highs will stick around or just above 70
degrees. An isolated shower or storm will be possible by late
afternoon and evening in northwest Iowa.
Rainfall chances will ramp up after Monday as an area of low pressure
moves through the region Tuesday and into Wednesday, although no
severe weather is expected. Another potent storm system will impact
the central tier of the country late in the week, which will bring the
potential for more widespread and potentially heavy rainfall to the
area. At this time, the threat for severe weather looks to remain
south of the Iowa with this system.
