Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
548 PM CDT Tue Aug 15 2017

How about that. Finally some decent rain a fair amount of Iowa! While
central Iowa saw the least, around a tenth to quarter of an inch, many
areas in southern Iowa saw around an inch today as showers and storms
tracked across the state. Even northern Iowa was in the process of
seeing decent rainfall as of this evening as another series of storms
moved across that portion of the state. As one could imagine, with
storms and cloud cover around, temperatures were on the mild side with
many areas only seeing highs in the mid to upper 70s. A few areas of
southern iowa were able to reach into the mid 80s thanks to brief
periods of cloud cover before or after the storms. As of this evening,
the remaining storms were situated over far southeast Iowa and then
across portions of northern and northwest Iowa.

Another round of widespread showers and storms will move across
tonight and through much of Wednesday. Another half inch to inch of
rain will be possible for many, and some may see totals of two inches
or more through Wednesday night. After Wednesday, the weather will
for the most part remain quiet. Another round of scattered showers and
storms will move through Friday afternoon and evening, but otherwise
remain dry through the weekend. Temperatures will continue to be
seasonable to a bit on the cool side, save for Sunday where
temperatures look to rise back into the mid and even upper 80s.
