Weather Summary for Iowa

624 PM CDT Sat Sep 24 2016
After a warm and muggy day throughout much of Iowa...a line of
storms progressed across western Iowa this afternoon and brought a
widespread 1 to 2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts.
These storms were progressing slowly eastward towards the
Interstate 35 corridor. Winds of 30 to 40 mph had also been
reported with some storms. Highs today topped out in the upper 70s
northeast to the mid to upper 80s south. Winds were from the
southeast at 10 to 15 mph.
The line of storms will continue to progress through the state
tonight and bring widespread rain to the area. Due to the ongoing
flooding in northeast Iowa, a flash flood watch is in effect for
the area since any additional rain will quickly lead to further
flooding problems. This system will pass into the Ohio River
valley by Sunday with cooler and drier air spreading throughout
the region into early next week. This will provide pleasant
conditions for much of the upcoming week with seasonable
temperatures and little threat of precipitation. Highs will likely
be in the 60s and 70s, with lows in the 40s and 50s.
