Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
529 AM CDT WED MAY 25 2016

Several clusters of showers and thunderstorms moved across western
and central Iowa overnight. Precipitation associated with these
thunderstorms was generally around one quarter inch. As of early
this morning, the showers and storms continued to move
northeastward across the State, and will continue to do so
through late morning. Overnight temperatures were rather mild and
by 5 AM had only dipped into the lower to mid 60s. Dewpoints
remained near 60, making it feel quite muggy. Winds were generally
light and variable.

For the remainder of the morning, expect a continuation of widespread
showers and thunderstorms across central Iowa. However, another
widespread area of showers and storms was developing over
Nebraska, and this new round of storms could move from west to
east into Iowa later this morning and into the afternoon. Highs
will once again be in the low to mid 80s. Winds will be from the
south to southeast at 10 to 20 mph.

After a fairly quiet night, expect Thursday to bring another threat
for severe weather to the area. Strong to severe thunderstorms
are possible on Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. Large
hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will all be threats. The
unsettled weather pattern will continue on Friday, and
unfortunately into the Memorial Day weekend. Temperatures should
stay on the warm side, with highs ranging from the low to mid 80s
on Thursday, with 70s and 80s into the weekend.
