Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1017 AM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

Was anyone outside early this morning? In most cases it felt much more
like a summer morning than a mid to late September morning with
seasonally warm lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Northwest Iowa was
the lone exception as a cold front began to make its way into the
state. As one might expect with a front moving through, temperatures
and winds as of late this morning ranged quite a bit with northwest
Iowa in the upper 50s to low 60s with northwest winds and the rest of
the state in the 70s with southwest winds.

The cold front will slowly move to the southeast through the day, but
should only significantly curb highs across the northwest. Highs will
as a result range from the low to mid 70s to low 90s from northwest to
southeast. A few showers and storms are likely to occur this afternoon
as well, anywhere from central to southeast Iowa along and near the
front and may stick around southern Iowa overnight. Unfortunately,
cool temperatures will not be seen through the week with highs in the
80s to low 90s expected through the start of the weekend before a nice
cool down back into the 60s and 70s by early next week. The next
widespread opportunity for precipitation will move on through late
Sunday into Monday ahead of the cooler temperatures.
