Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
452 AM CDT Tue Jun 20 2017

An overall quiet night with winds light and variable and some clouds
passing over parts of the state. Temperatures have dropped into the
middle and upper 50s with the exception of south central Iowa where
lows were still in the 60s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will pass over northeast Iowa,
southeast Minnesota and much of Wisconsin as a cold front drops
through the region this morning. Behind the front, winds will become
breezy with wind gusts of 20 to 25 mph possible. This front will also
be the focus for isolated thunderstorm development this afternoon over
southern Iowa and northern Missouri. A better chance for more
widespread rainfall across the state will be in the form of scattered
showers and thunderstorms accompanying a cold front later Wednesday
into late Thursday. Strong to perhaps severe storms along with locally
heavy rain are possible. As the front clears the region late this
week, much cooler and drier air will arrive on winds from the north. A
reinforcing shot of cool air will arrive over the weekend with some
showers and a few storms possible. Temperatures will be below normal
this weekend with highs mainly in the 70s and lows in the 50s.
