Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1035 AM CDT Fri Jul 14 2017

It was a pretty pleasant start to the day across much of the state
this morning with lows ranging from the low 50s in the north to the
low 60s in the south. North winds continued to keep dew points
relatively low in the 50s, with the lone except being southwest Iowa
in the 60s. While much of the state started cloud free, a few clouds
have begun to creep into northwest and northeast Iowa respectively by
late this morning. Temperatures had also risen nicely into the upper
60s to low 70s in most locations.

Hopefully people will be able to get out and enjoy the mild
temperatures today with highs only expected in the mid 70s to mid 80s.
Unfortunately, the mild and less humid conditions will be short lived
as warmer and more humid conditions move in over the weekend. By early
next week, highs will return to the 90s for most, along with dew
points approaching the low 70s at times. Resulting heat index values
will be around 100 at their peak. Any relief in the form of rain looks
unlikely for many in the coming few days, with the best widespread
chances not coming until mid-week next week.
