Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1055 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

Cloud cover was on the increase across western Iowa this morning in
advance of an area of scattered showers entering the northwest
counties. It was a mild morning with low temperatures in the lower 40s
north to the upper 40s and lower 50s central. By late morning,
temperatures had warmed into the upper 50s northwest to the upper 60s
southeast. Light south winds around sunrise had increased throughout
the morning to 20 to 30 mph with stronger gusts.

Low pressure was centered along the Nebraska and South Dakota border
this morning. The low will move through the Plains today and into
Minnesota tonight. Strong south winds will persist ahead of this
system today across much of the region including Iowa with above
normal temperatures. Farther west, along the frontal boundary, scattered
showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible today with a few of
the showers grazing western and northern Iowa by this afternoon. The
front will move into Iowa tonight before stalling out as another low
pressure system develops in western Kansas. This low will move into
Iowa with the threat of showers and a few storms, mainly in western
and northern Iowa into Minnesota. Additional chances of precipitation
will continue Tuesday night into Wednesday across the Mississippi
River Valley as the system pulls slowly eastward. Some break in the
action is expected late Wednesday into early Friday. However, active
weather appears in store for much of the upcoming weekend for a large
portion of the region including Iowa.
