Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1143 AM CDT Mon Jun 19 2017

Partly sunny skies existed over portions of northeast and southeast
Iowa this morning, with mostly sunny skies elsewhere. Some light rain
showers were found over southeast Iowa. Winds were generally west or
northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Temperatures ranged from the near 70 across
northern Iowa to near 80 across the southwest.

Northwest flow will continue over the region today with conditions
similar to Sunday expected. There will be another chance of isolated
showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon. Some of the storms
may be just strong enough to produce wind gusts to near 50 mph and
possibly some small hail. Otherwise winds will be gusty this
afternoon at 20 to 30 mph at times along with highs in the mid 70s
north to the lower 80s in the south. Tonight will be clear with lows
in the 50 to near 60.

Tuesday will be relatively quiet as an area of high pressure moves
over the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Summer officially begins
Wednesday and just in time for the return of warmer weather. A more
active weather pattern will return by midweek with stronger low
pressure moving toward the Central Plains on Wednesday. Southerly
winds will bring warmer and more humid air back into the region as
highs reach the upper 80s to lower 90s in the afternoon. Thunderstorm
chances will return by Wednesday and will continue through Thursday
night. Some of the storms may be strong to severe. The weather will
remain active on and off through the weekend with additional chances
for thunderstorms Thursday and Thursday night and again on Saturday.
Highs from late week into the weekend will be cooler but still mild in
the 70s to near 80.
