Weather Summary for Iowa

1114 AM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017
Well, at least part of the state broke out from the clouds overnight
and this morning. Unfortunately, that clearing has not made much
progress out of the north and northwest. Otherwise, clouds remained
blanketed over a majority of the state and kept with the overall
dreary conditions. For the most part, overnight lows were mild in the
upper 30s to low 40s under the clouds, but areas in the north and
northwest fell down into the low 30s and upper 20s under clear skies.
By late this morning, temperatures had risen into the upper 40s to low
50s, with the warmest temperatures underneath the clear skies of
Cloud cover will generally plague the area through the week,
especially as another low pressure system moves into the region. While
today will remain dry, precipitation will begin to move in from the
west overnight tonight and trek eastward through the day Wednesday.
Precipitation chances will continue on through Thursday and taper off
by Friday morning. In total, as much as an inch to an inch and half
may fall over large areas of southern Iowa and into parts of Nebraska,
Missouri and Illinois. While no severe weather is expected through the
area, river flooding may become an issue with expected river rises.
Temperatures throughout the week will remain on the cool side with
temperatures generally in the 40s to 50s.
