Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
340 AM CDT Fri Apr 21 2017

Clouds dissipated quickly overnight across Iowa as drier air moved
into the state. This left behind clear skies along with light
northerly winds. Temperatures dropped nicely under these conditions during
the early morning hours with readings ranging from the upper 30s in
the north to the mid 40s in the southeast.

Most of the active weather over the next several days will be confined
to the southern third of the region. Showers and thunderstorms are
expected from Kansas into Missouri and southern Illinois for much of
today into Saturday. Meanwhile, Canadian high pressure will dominate
the weather across the upper Midwest including Iowa. Skies will be
clear to partly cloudy in these areas with temperatures at or below
normal into Saturday. The tranquil weather will persist into Sunday as
well although temperatures are forecast to begin warming as southerly
winds increase.
