Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1138 AM CDT Tue Aug 22 2017

Iowa was able to begin the drying out process last night as showers
and storms finally moved out of the area. In all, a number of areas,
especially across the west, saw upwards of 6 or more inches of rain
over the last couple of days. Many through the remainder of the state
saw much needed rain as well, often in the 1 to 3 inch range. With the
exiting storms, skies were also able to begin to clear overnight and
allow temperatures to drop quite quickly in a few spots. Areas of
northwest Iowa saw lows quickly dip down into the low to mid 50s,
while much of the rest of the state resided in the low to mid 60s. By
late this morning, cool and dry northwest winds had temperatures
residing in the mid 60s to low 70s statewide.

The remainder of the week shapes up to be quite comfortable.
Temperatures will remain primarily in the 70s for highs and 50s for
low, along with pleasant dew points in the 50s. The next best
opportunity for widespread rainfall, scattered or otherwise, does not
look to move into the region until the weekend.
