Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
459 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017

Conditions were quite typical for mid July across Iowa overnight with
partly cloudy skies and just a few isolated showers and thunderstorms
over southeast sections during the early morning hours. Temperatures
heading toward daybreak were fairly uniform in the upper 60s to middle
70s. A weak trough of low pressure was drifting south through the
state separating light north winds from light southwest winds.

This trough may produce more isolated showers and storms as it reaches the
Iowa and Missouri border into Illinois during the late afternoon and
early evening hours today, but otherwise dry conditions can be
expected to start the week. The main theme through the week will be an
extended period of very warm and humid conditions through the
Missouri River Valley with highs often well into the 90s from central
Iowa into Nebraska and Missouri. Heat indices should reach 100
degrees or more during peak heating of the day. Intermittent chances
for showers and thunderstorms will also return to the forecast
starting Tuesday and continuing through the week.
