Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
526 PM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017

Depending on where you are in the state, it was either a comfortable
spring day or a dreary, wet and chilly day. Generally, that meant you
were in either in the southeast half or the northwest half of the
state respectively. Highs ranged from a borderline cold mid-40s in the
far northwest parts of Iowa to a warm upper 70s to low 80s in the far
southeast. While light showers still remain over parts of the
northwest and should continue, activity will increase over the south
and southeast this evening as the parent system slowly slides

By now you have probably heard that the week and upcoming weekend will
primarily be on the cool and wet side across the region. Highs will be
on the cool to chilly side in the 40s and 50s most of the time. Lows,
as one could unfortunately imagine, will range from the low 30s in
northern parts of the region to the low and mid 40s further south. The
best opportunities for rain and any isolated thunder will be this
evening and overnight, and then Friday and on through the weekend.
Areas on the southern side will likely see the most rain, with total
amounts possibly approaching and exceeding 2 to 3 inches by the end of
the weekend.
