Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1110 AM CDT Tue Aug 23 2016

Skies were partly cloudy across Iowa early this morning. Quite
typical for late August, early morning temperatures were mainly in
the 60s with just a few upper 50s east. At 7 am, the low
temperature in Des Moines was 64 degrees, the low in Waterloo was
63, and the low in Davenport was 61. Winds were generally south
at 5 to 15 mph.

Although it has been dry and less humid over the past few days,
conditions will change later today with increasing humidity and
chances for showers and thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will be
likely by tonight with severe weather and locally heavy rains
possible. All modes of severe weather are possibly, generally
through midnight, and the threat will transition to heavy
rainfall into Wednesday morning. The highs amounts of rain will
likely occur over central to western Iowa, where a widespread 1 to
2 inches may occur.

The front driving the precipitation should be moving
through Iowa Wednesday before reaching Missouri and Illinois by
Wednesday Night. This will keep chances for showers and storms in
the forecast for those areas before drying out into Thursday when
cooler, less humid weather will return, especially for Iowa and
states to the west and north.
