Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
516 PM CDT Mon Jun 19 2017

Although just a few degrees warmer, conditions this afternoon were
very similar to Sunday. Afternoon sunshine led to the development of
scattered cloud cover and a few showers and storms. Some of the storms
produced small hail before pushing into eastern Iowa by early evening.
Temperatures were generally in the upper 70s to mid 80s with breezy
northwest winds.

Precipitation chances will diminish quickly this evening with the loss
of daytime heating. An area of high pressure will move into the state
on Tuesday, which will lead to dry conditions for much of the day.
Some parts of southern Iowa may see a few showers and storms by
Tuesday evening.

Better chances for storms will arrive Wednesday and Thursday as the
next cold front slowly sags south through the area. Warm, humid air
will return with southerly winds on Wednesday. Storms will be
possible late in the day and overnight, with the best chances in
northern Iowa. Some of the storms may be severe. The front will slowly
move into central Iowa on Thursday, which will set the stage for
additional thunderstorm chances and potential severe weather.

The end of the week and through the weekend looks pleasant again as
northwest winds deliver more unseasonably cool air down from Canada.
It looks likely that much of the area will see below normal
temperatures with highs in the 70s and low in the 50s. Some showers
and storms are possible, but widespread rainfall is not expected
during this time period.
