Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
457 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

Quiet conditions were common across Iowa overnight as low pressure
moved across the High Plains. South winds ahead of the low helped keep
readings relatively warm across the state overnight as high clouds
moved overhead. Temperatures during the early morning hours ranged
from the mid 40s to mid 50s across the state.

The low will move through the Plains today and into Minnesota by
tonight. Strong south winds will persist ahead of this system today
across much of the region including Iowa with above normal
temperatures. Farther west near the low and surface front, scattered
showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible today with a few of
the showers grazing western and northern Iowa by this afternoon. The
front will move into Iowa tonight before stalling out as another low
develops in western Kansas. This low will move into the state on
Tuesday with the threat of showers and a few storms, mainly in western
and northern Iowa into Minnesota. Additional chances of precipitation
will continue Tuesday night into Wednesday across the Mississippi
River Valley as the system pulls slowly eastward. Some break in the
action is expected late Wednesday into early Friday. However, active
weather appears in store for much of the upcoming weekend for a large
portion of the region including Iowa.
