Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
459 PM CDT Sat Jul 16 2016

It was another mild day across Iowa with southeast winds of 10 to
15 mph and mostly sunny skies. High temperatures were in the
middle 70s north to the lower and middle 80s south.

High pressure remained in place across the upper midwest today.
Slightly warmer air and increased dewpoints and moisture will
spread back into the region today as the high pressure continues
to slide east of the midwest. The moisture will help fuel
thunderstorms across the northern plains tonight where locally
heavy rains and gusty winds are expected. These storms will slide
east tonight into Minnesota and Iowa as a cold front pushes
southeast through the upper Midwest. The threat for thunderstorms
will persist into Iowa and states east on Sunday as the front
slowly edges southeast through the day. The threat for thunderstorms
will persist into early next week ahead of much warmer air set to
arrive by the middle of the week. Heat index values will be in the
90s on Sunday, and will likely exceed 100 degrees Wednesday into
next weekend.
