Weather Summary for Iowa

1130 AM CDT Sat Sep 24 2016
An old boundary extended from near Sioux City to near Des Moines
and down toward Burlington overnight. North of this boundary, low
clouds and light fog were common over the north half of Iowa.
Meanwhile...clear skies and light southeast winds were the rule in
southern Iowa. Temperatures were very similar across the state
with readings in the mid 60s although a few readings near 70s were
occurring near the Missouri river in far western Iowa.
A storm system is expected to pass through the Plains today and
into the upper Midwest tonight. There will be one more day of well
above normal temperatures from Iowa into surrounding states prior
to the arrival of the system. Showers and thunderstorms are
expected to develop this afternoon near the Missouri River valley
and track east into Iowa and Minnesota tonight. The storms will
bring gusty winds along with localized heavy rainfall. This system
will pass into the Ohio River valley by Sunday with cooler and
drier air spreading throughout the region into early next week.
This will provide pleasant conditions for much of the upcoming
week with seasonable temperatures and little threat of
precipitation. Highs will likely be in the 60s and 70s, with lows
in the 40s and 50s.
