Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1111 AM CDT Sat Jul 23 2016

Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed over western and
northern Iowa this morning. The heaviest rain was falling across
the north central and northeast counties. Outside of the areas of
rain...skies were generally mostly sunny. It was a warm and humid
morning with early morning lows in the 70s and dew points in the
70s also. By late morning, temperatures were in the rain cooled
lower 70s over the northeast to around 90 southeast. The warm air
and high dew points have pushed heat indices over 100 over the
southeast counties. South winds were mainly 10 to 15 mph.

A cold front stretched across the upper midwest into the Great
Lakes this morning. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to
develop along this boundary today. This will keep temperatures
from rising too quickly for much of the day. However, as the
storms clear out of most areas this afternoon the temperature will
quickly climb through the 80s and into the 90s across southern
Iowa and it will remain very muggy. The cold front will bring
more thunderstorm chances tonight, mainly across the north and
northeast, then the front will move slowly across Iowa on Sunday
and provide some relief from the heat next week with daily highs
generally in the 80s. Aside from a few isolated storms the next
significant rain chances will come between Tuesday night and
Wednesday night, then again around the end of next week.
