Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1145 AM CDT Wed Aug 24 2016

Heavy rainfall had come to an end over northeastern Iowa this
morning but the flooding impacts lingered well through the day
with many roads washed out or flooded. A cold front was pushing
through northwestern Iowa, bringing cooler and drier air on the
backside of the front. Temperatures late this morning were in the
70s statewide with dew points ranging from the low 70s ahead of
the front to the upper 50s behind it. Winds likewise were from the
west to southwest ahead of the front and from the northwest behind
it. Skies were mostly cloudy just along and ahead of the front
with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies elsewhere.

The aforementioned cold front will be the focus for renewed shower
and thunderstorm development later this afternoon and tonight in
the southern half of Iowa and northern Missouri. A slight risk
for severe weather is possible, but heavy rainfall will also be a
large threat and a flash flood watch is in effect for southern
Iowa and northern Missouri. Cooler and drier conditions are
expected once the front pushes to the south late tonight and
Thursday morning. High pressure will bring pleasant weather for
Friday before the next weather system arrives late Friday into
Saturday.
