Weather Summary for Iowa

510 AM CDT Sun Sep 17 2017

A cold front moved through Iowa overnight resulting in widespread
showers and thunderstorms. Many areas picked up some beneficial
rainfall ranging from a quarter inch to locally one inch or more. No
reports of severe weather were received. Skies remained cloudy
overnight with temperatures quite variable. In the northwest, well
behind the cold front, temperatures tumbled into the 40s whereas in
the far southeast they remained mild in the mid 60s.

For today, high pressure will build into Iowa from the west. After
some residual morning rainfall in the east, dry condition are
anticipated in most areas. Expect at least partial clearing
today...with skies becoming partly to mostly cloudy. It will be
noticeably cooler today with highs only reaching the mid 60s north and
in the mid 70s south.

The dry weather will be short lived as low pressure redevelops over
the region tonight. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
across western Iowa around midnight with precipitation then spreading eastward
across the state late tonight into the day on Monday. No severe
weather is anticipated, but additional rainfall amounts from a
quarter inch to three quarters of an inch are likely. Temperatures
will remain cool on Monday due to the clouds and precipitation.

A relatively active weather pattern is likely this work week, with
additional chances of showers and thunderstorms right into the
upcoming weekend. A warming trend should occur by mid to late week
with highs rebounding back into the 80s.
