Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
535 PM CDT Thu Sep 22 2016

Showers and a few thunderstorms continued to fester for much of
the afternoon over an already waterlogged northeast to east
central Iowa. Additional rainfall amounts this afternoon were
generally less than a half an inch, though a few spots did get
close to an inch and a half of rain. A stationary boundary
stretched from the northwest to southeast corners of the state,
with highs north of the boundary in the mid 70s while to the south
readings topped out in the 80s to low 90s. Winds were from the
east to northeast north of the front and from the south to the
south of the boundary.

The aforementioned boundary will serve as the focus for renewed
shower and storm development later this afternoon and tonight
through Friday morning. These rains may bring a renewed threat of
flash flooding to northern Iowa and prolong and ongoing flooding
in the northeast part of the state. This front will lift north for
Friday, allowing warm and muggy air to persist or spread northward
into Minnesota. Similar conditions are expected into Saturday
before a cold front swings through the region Saturday night into
Sunday. This will bring a renewed threat of showers and storms as
it passes through. Cooler and drier air will then follow in the
wake of this system for much of the next week.
