Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
538 PM CDT Tue Sep 12 2017

While the dry spell continues across the state, it was at least
another comfortable mostly sunny day. Highs reached into the low to
mid 80s across the entirety of Iowa, along with generally light and
variable winds. Temperatures as of early this evening remained within
a degree or two of daytime highs, and winds continued to remain light.
Overnight lows will vary a bit as southerly winds make their way into
western Iowa, resulting in lows around 60 out west and low 50s across
the east.

For the most part, the week will continue to be a broken record of dry
conditions with highs in the 80s and lows generally in the 50s. A few
spots may see highs hit 90 though towards the end of the week. Our
best shot at any precipitation will move through during the weekend,
beginning Friday evening and on through Sunday. The best window during
the weekend shapes up to be Saturday evening and overnight, but some
spots may miss out altogether with showers and storms potentially
being scattered in nature. Temperatures will cool down by Sunday
though as a cold front ushers in highs in the 70s to low 80s that will
last through Monday before starting to warm back up into the mid 80s.
