Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
513 AM CDT Mon Aug 22 2016

It was a quiet and cool night across all of Iowa. Besides a few
mid and high level clouds over northern and western Iowa...skies
were generally clear. Temperatures early this morning ranged from
the lower to middle 50s in eastern Iowa to around 60 in the west.
Winds were beginning to pick up out of the south with speeds
ranging from 5 to 15 mph.

Warmer temperatures are expected today due to combination of
plenty of sunshine and a breezy south wind. In fact wind speeds
could become quite strong with sustained winds from 10 to 20 mph
with a few gusts in excess of 30 mph...especially over northern
Iowa. High temperatures should range from around 80 in the east
to near 90 in the far west. A warm and humid airmass will move
into the state on Tuesday setting the stage for several rounds of
showers and thunderstorms. A few strong to severe storms are
possible on Tuesday evening in western Iowa with rainfall then
spreading eastward across the state on Tuesday night and into
Wednesday. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible in some areas
possibly exceeding one or two inches. The unsettled weather
pattern is expected to persist into Thursday with highs generally
in the 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s.
