Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
529 PM CDT Wed Apr 19 2017

There was quite a spread, which continues this evening, of
temperatures across Iowa with northern Iowa struggling to get out of
the 40s and lower 50s and parts of southern and central Iowa soaring
into the 70s and low 80s. The culprit of the temperature differences
is a warm front which has made its way into central Iowa early this
evening. South of the warm front winds continue to be quite gusty out
of the south and areas north of the warm front are seeing cool winds
out of the east.

This evening could be quite eventful for portions of the region as a
low pressure system continues to move its way across Nebraska and
Iowa. With fairly warm temperatures and dew points from roughly
Interstate 80 on south, storms will have the potential to be severe
with large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. The greatest
tornado threat will be across far eastern Nebraska and western Iowa,
while hail and winds threats will exist for the most part from
Interstate 80 southward. As always, please pay attention to the
weather whenever severe weather is a threat.

To end the week, temperatures will cool down into the 50s and low 60s
before warming back up Sunday. While cool, much of the region should
remain dry, with the only real chances down through Missouri to end
the week.
