Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
508 PM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017

Cooler and breezy conditions overspread much of the northern and
central Plains today in the wake of a strong cold front. Afternoon
highs in Iowa ranged from the mid 70s to low 80s. A few showers were
noted on radar in northern Iowa, however the shower activity will
dissipate with the loss of heating later this evening.

Similar conditions are expected for Monday, with another chance for
isolated showers and storms during the afternoon hours. Tuesday looks
quiet as an area of high pressure traverses the Upper Mississippi
region. Southerly winds on Wednesday will bring warm, humid air back
into the state, along with the potential for thunderstorms Wednesday
night through Thursday night. Some of these storms may be severe.

Comfortable temperatures in the 70s and low 80s will return again in
time for next weekend. Periodic chances for a few showers and storms
will continue, but the threat for severe weather looks to be low
during this time period.
