Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1057 AM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017

Cloud cover was on the increase over the northern third of the state
this morning. The remainder of the state was sunny. Early morning lows
were in the middle 50s north to the lower 60s central and south. By
late morning, temperatures were in the mid 60s north to the lower 70s
south. Northwest winds were 10 to 15 mph.

A cold front stretched from the Great Lakes into Illinois and southern
Missouri and will continue to drop south and east today. Another
frontal system was positioned over the Dakotas, Minnesota and northern
Wisconsin. An abundance of cloud cover was the result of this system.
Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur this afternoon
and evening. Highs today will be in the 70s to lower 80s across the
region with lows in the 50s tonight. These near seasonal conditions
will continue into early week...but another cool front and upper
level system will swing across the region Monday afternoon. This will
result in more scattered thunderstorms with a few stronger
thunderstorms possible. Periodic chances for storms will continue
through the remainder of the week as highs steadily warm back to the
upper 80s to lower 90s by Wednesday with more summer like humidity.
This will lead to several periods of thunderstorms from Wednesday
evening through Friday night as more active weather returns to much of
the Central and Southern Plains as well as the Mississippi River
