Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
509 AM CDT Tue Aug 23 2016
Skies were partly cloudy across Iowa early this morning.
Quite typical for late August, early morning temperatures were
mainly in the 60s with just a few upper 50s east. Winds were
generally south at 5 to 15 mph.
Although it has been dry and less humid over the past few days,
conditions will change later today with increasing humidity and
chances for showers and thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will be
likely by tonight with severe weather and locally heavy rains
possible. The front driving the precipitation should be moving
through Iowa Wednesday before reaching Missouri and Illinois by
Wednesday Night. This will keep chances for showers and storms in
the forecast for those areas before drying out into Thursday when
cooler, less humid weather will return, especially for Iowa and
states to the west and north.
