Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1103 AM CDT Sat Jul 30 2016

Iowa awoke to mostly cloudy skies and relatively cooler
temperatures, although this morning`s lows were close to normal
for this time of year. Outside of a handful of showers there was
little in the way of precipitation from this morning`s clouds.
Early morning temperatures varied from the middle 50s northwest,
where there was less clouds, to the upper 60s farther east, where
there were more clouds. The low temperature in Des Moines was 66,
the low in Waterloo was 63, and the low in Sioux Falls, SD was 53
degrees. Winds were light from the northwest to northeast.

The weather will change little to start the weekend with plenty of
cloud cover through the Mississippi Valley and isolated showers
and thunderstorms during peak heating of the day. Saturday
afternoon temperatures should range from the upper 70s to low 80s,
with light northerly to northeasterly winds.

The heat and humidity will return into next week, as highs will
climb back into the 90 degree and above range through the
Missouri Valley by Tuesday. Additionally, heat indices will
approach 100 degrees at times across Iowa. Periodic chances for
showers and thunderstorms will return to the entire region early
next week.
