Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
601 PM CDT Fri Sep 23 2016

It was a quiet afternoon weather-wise across Iowa, giving the
northern part of the state a chance to dry out after multiple
rounds of heavy rain in the last few nights. However, nearly all
rivers in the northeast Iowa were experiencing significant
flooding. A frontal boundary was progressing southwest through the
central part of the state, with highs northeast of the front in
the upper 60s to 70s while southwest of the boundary highs reached
the upper 80s. Winds were from the east to the north of the
boundary and from the southwest to the south of the front.

Storms should remain well north of Iowa tonight and result in a
quiet, albeit muggy night with dew points still hovering in the
upper 60s. One more day of above normal temperatures are forecast
for Saturday before a cold front sweeps through the state late in
the night. This will bring another round of rain to much of Iowa
from late Saturday into early Sunday. However, drier and cooler
air push into the region behind this front and last for much of
next week.
