Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
429 AM CDT Wed Oct 19 2016

Weak surface ridging pushed into Iowa overnight producing light
and variable winds across the state. Clouds in the Plains moved
over Iowa during the early morning hours which kept temperatures
from getting too cold overnight. Readings during the early morning
hours ranged the lower 40s to lower 50s statewide.

A system across the Rockies will pass into the Plains today with
clouds increasing across much of the Region. Showers and
thunderstorms are expected to develop along a frontal boundary in
southern Missouri eastward into Illinois by this afternoon.
Farther north, a few sprinkles will be possible in Iowa although
most locations will remain dry. This system will pass to the east
tonight with cooler air continuing to filter southward into the
Midwest. The coolest day of the week is expected on Thursday with
readings 5 to 10 degrees below normal for much of the area. Warmer
air will spread into the state through the weekend with
temperatures returning to or above normal along with little threat
of precipitation.
