Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
434 AM CDT Mon Jun 19 2017

A mix of clouds and clear skies continues over Iowa early this morning.
Winds are generally west or west southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures
are holding in the mid to upper 50s across the region. Some very light
showers are affecting far northwest Iowa but will dissipate before

We continue in northwest flow over the region and conditions similar
to Sunday are expected across the region today. There will be another
chance of isolated showers and a few thunderstorms during the late
morning to afternoon hours. Some of the storms may be just strong
enough to produce wind gusts to near 50 mph and possibly some very
small hail. Otherwise winds will be gusty this afternoon at 20 to 30
mph at times along with highs in the mid 70s north to the lower 80s in
the south. Tonight will be clear with lows in the 50 to near 60.

Tuesday will be quiet as an area of high pressure moves over the Upper
Mississippi River Valley. Summer officially begins Wednesday and just
in time for the return of warmer weather. A more active pattern
returns by midweek with stronger low pressure moving toward the
Central Plains on Wednesday. Southerly winds on will bring warmer and
more humid air back into the region as highs reach the upper 80s to
lower 90s in the afternoon. This will enhance thunderstorm chances by
late day with thunderstorms Wednesday night through Thursday night.
Parts of Iowa...Nebraska...Minnesota...South Dakota and Kansas are
already outlooked for severe weather Wednesday and Wednesday night.
The weather will remain active on and off through the weekend with
additional chances for thunderstorms Thursday and Thursday night and
again on Saturday. Highs from late week into the weekend will be
cooler but still mild in the 70s to near 80.
