Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
505 AM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017

While most of the evening and very early morning hours have been quiet
with a partly to mostly clear sky, shortly before 4am a few showers
and thunderstorms developed over northwest Iowa. Temperatures ranged
from the middle 50s over northeast Iowa to around 70 degrees over far
southwest Iowa, where a warm front is beginning to lift northward into

The aforementioned scattered showers accompanied by rumbles of thunder
will move southeast across central Iowa into eastern Iowa this
morning. Additionally, showers and thunderstorms were moving into
southeast South Dakota and are expected to move into and through Iowa
this morning, though southwest Iowa may miss out on this rainfall.
A better chance for showers and thunderstorms is expected late this
afternoon and overnight Wednesday with severe storms possible. As a
cold front drops into Iowa on Thursday, more showers and storms will
be possible with some severe storms and locally heavy rain.

Behind this cold front, brisk breezes from the northwest will develop
and deliver much cooler and drier air on Friday. Temperatures from
Friday through Sunday will generally average 10 degrees below normal,
with highs in the 70s and lows mainly in the 50s. Widespread rainfall
is not expected, but some spotty showers or isolated thunderstorms are
possible this weekend.
