Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1115 AM CDT Sat Jul 16 2016

Quiet weather continued throughout the Saturday morning hours
across Iowa as high pressure was located over the eastern portions
of the state. Low clouds did move into north central and
northeast Iowa during the early morning hours otherwise skies were
clear elsewhere. Temperatures generally ranged from the lower 50s
in the northwest to the mid 60s in the south. The low in Des
Moines was 64 degrees, the low in Waterloo was 53, and it was 51
degrees in Estherville. Winds were generally light from the
east to northeast.

Slightly warmer air and increased dewpoints and moisture will
begin spreading back into the region today as the aforementioned
high pressure continues to slide east of the Midwest. The
moisture will help fuel thunderstorms across the northern plains
later today where locally heavy rains and gusty winds are
expected. These storms will slide east tonight into Minnesota and
Iowa as a cold pushes southeast through the upper Midwest. The
threat for thunderstorms will persist into Iowa and states to the
east on Sunday as the front slowly edges southeast through the
day. The threat for thunderstorms will persist into early next
week ahead of much warmer air set to arrive by the middle of the
week. Heat index values will be in the 90s on Sunday, and will
likely exceed 100 degrees Wednesday into next weekend.
