Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
556 PM CDT Thu Oct 12 2017

Other than some lingering cloud cover for the eastern half of for part
or much of the day, it was a very pleasant fall day. Highs topped out
in the upper 50s to low 60s where there was cloud cover and the mid to
upper 60s to the west where clear skies dominated. Clouds continued to
slowly clear out eastward this evening, leaving about the western two
thirds of the state under clear skies. Temperatures had also cooled a
couple of by early to mid evening, leaving the state ranging form the
mid 60s in the west to the upper 50s in the east.

A boundary slated to begin moving across the state tonight will
provide an opportunity for a few showers Friday and will also keep
temperatures in the lower 60s for the the northwest half to two thirds
of the state. An isolated rumble of thunder or two may be seen across
southern Iowa as well. The bigger story will be Saturday with the
potential for a few strong to severe storms and heavy rainfall. The
main areas of concern will be roughly the southeast half of the state,
with the severe threat greatest towards the south. After all of the
shower and storm activity moves off, Sunday will be on the cool side
with highs only expected in the 50s, but will be short lived as
temperatures warm back up into the 60s and low 70s throughout the new
work week.
