Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
533 PM CDT Wed Sep 13 2017

The inactive weather pattern continued to remain in place for the
Plains and Upper Midwest this afternoon and early evening. This kept
skies clear for the majority of Iowa. Portions of the western part of
the state saw some scattered cloud cover. High temperatures were in
the mid 80s across Iowa, with a few upper 80s in central Iowa.
Wind speeds were slightly higher compared to the last couple of days,
but were still relatively calm. Dewpoint temperatures were in the
upper 50s to lower 60s.

Across the region, upper level clouds kept high temperatures in the
upper 70s and lower 80s in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
Conditions remained mild throughout the region. Remnants of Irma still
left cloud cover over portions of Illinois, but skies have cleared as
it shifts eastward.

A weak boundary will continue slide southeast across the upper
midwest through the end of the work week. High temperatures will
gradually climb this weekend, reaching into the upper 80s and lower
90s across much of the upper midwest through Saturday. A cold front
will slowly make its way through the region, bringing a chance for
light showers or thunderstorms Thursday through Sunday, with more
widespread rainfall likely on Sunday morning. Temperatures will cool
significantly by Sunday with highs dropping into the 60s and 70s.
