Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
530 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017

Scattered showers and storms developed over north central Iowa and
moved into east central Iowa during the afternoon. Otherwise, skies
were mostly cloudy over the east and mostly sunny over the west. Late
afternoon temperatures ranged from the lower and middle 70s northeast
to the lower and middle 90s southwest. Breezy south winds were 10 to
20 mph with stronger gusts. Heat indices across the southwest half of
the state were in the middle 80s to middle 90s.

A warm front stretched from the eastern Dakotas into Iowa and Illinois
late this afternoon. A cold front stretched back in to the western
Dakotas. As the cold front makes its way east, showers and thunderstorms
will develop along the cold front Thursday into Thursday night.
Rainfall could be heavy at times. Once the cold front passes, temperatures
will drop quite a bit giving us some much needed relief. High temperatures
on Friday will only reach the upper 70s to lower 80s and through the
weekend we will be in the mid 70s. Scattered showers are expected
again Saturday and then mostly sunny skies for the remainder of the
weekend and into the work week.
