Weather Summary for Iowa...corrected
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
418 PM CDT Mon Aug 14 2017

Scattered showers and storms moved across northwest into central and
southeast Iowa this morning. Areas of heavy rain...between one and
two inches were reported from those cells. Lighter amounts fell
elsewhere. Early morning temperatures were in the middle 50s
northwest to the lower and middle 60s elsewhere. By late morning,
the rain was confined to the far southeast counties and temperatures
were in the middle 60s to middle 70s. Winds over northwest Iowa were
northwest around 10 mph, while the remainder of the state had
variable winds.

Low pressure was centered over Iowa this morning with a warm front
extending into Missouri and a cold front stretching into Nebraska. A
boundary will settle into Iowa today and reach the Interstate 80
corridor by late afternoon. Additional storms will be possible late
afternoon and into the overnight south of the boundary though the
potential for widespread rainfall is low. Tuesday will be mostly dry
east of the Missouri river as the boundary lifts back north. Better
chances for precipitation arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday as
boundary moves through the region. Highs this week will be in the mid
to upper 70s and 80s with little change expected following the
boundary passage.
