Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
519 PM CDT Sat May 20 2017

Mostly cloudy and cool conditions held strong through yet another
afternoon as a large low pressure system slowly moved into the
Central Plains. Temperatures were in the 50s and 60s, although a few
70s were noted in southeast Iowa where more sunshine was observed. A
line of light showers were pushing north through central Iowa,
otherwise much of the state was dry. Showers and an isolated rumble of
thunder will be possible in northern and eastern Iowa this evening.
Otherwise it will be chilly tonight with lows in the low to mid 40s.

Temperatures will mainly be near or below normal for the better part
of the next week with highs in the 60s and 70s. Chances for showers
and storms return to the forecast Monday and Tuesday. A few strong to
severe storms are possible Monday afternoon and evening, although
widespread severe weather is not expected. The forecast then dries out
for the middle of the week, but the regional weather pattern looks to
become more active again by next weekend.
