Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1056 AM CDT Wed May 24 2017

There were a few more showers that moved through parts of central and
eastern Iowa over night and early this morning, but for the most part
it was just a cloudy and dreary start to the day. Morning lows were
mild due to the cloud cover, staying in the mid 40s to low 50s. On the
bright side, parts of western Iowa woke up to sunshine. By late this
morning, temperatures had only risen just a few degrees into the mid
and upper 50s thanks to cool northerly winds.

While widespread rain is not expected across the area today, they
system will be slow to move out, keeping cloud cover around much of
the day and periodic light rain and drizzle in eastern areas. Highs
will understandably remain on the cool side, topping out in the low to
mid 60s, before warmer temperatures in the 70s return to end the week
and through the weekend. Thursday will be pleasant with sunshine and
70s, but Friday and on through the weekend will be hit or miss with
sporadic shower and storm activity expected, including the possibility
of a strong storm or two.
