Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
511 AM CDT Thu Sep 14 2017

Quiet weather conditions persisted overnight with clear to partly
cloudy skies. A few locations across central and eastern Iowa did see
some patchy fog...with the lowest visibility along the Mississippi
River. As of 5am...a few showers and storms were ongoing over eastern
Nebraska. A few of these storms may make it into western Iowa this
morning before gradually sliding to the south and diminishing. Any
rainfall with these showers and storms should remain very light. Winds
overnight remained out of the south which resulted in very mild
overnight temperatures in the 50s east to the 60s west.

Today...expect a very warm day with plenty of sunshine and breezy
southerly winds of 15 to 25 mph. Expect high temperatures to top out
in the upper 80s across northern and eastern Iowa...and into the
lower 90s in the south and west. These readings will be 10 to 15
degrees above mid-September averages. A few showers and storms are
possible again tonight as additional moisture attempts to stream into
the region from the south.

Expect very warm conditions to continue on Friday and Saturday ahead
of an approaching cold front. Highs will again reach the upper 80s to
lower 90s. By Saturday afternoon, a cold front will slowly make its
way through the Iowa and surrounding states, bringing a chance for
showers and thunderstorms. The best potential for more widespread
rainfall will be Saturday night into early Sunday. A strong storm or
two will also be possible. Behind this cold front, temperatures will
cool significantly by Sunday with highs dropping back into the 70s.
