Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1202 PM CDT Sun Jul 17 2016

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms impacted much of Iowa
overnight. Significant damage was reported across portions of
northern Iowa, specifically Humboldt and Wright counties. Damaging
winds were the main hazardous impacts. Much of Fort Dodge lost
power as power lines were snapped across the city. There was also
flash flooding reported across portions of northern Iowa,
especially in Mason City. A widespread 2 to 3 inches of rainfall
was reported across the northern few tiers of counties. In Mason
City, this led to one roadway becoming covered with water an
estimated 3 to 4 feet deep, submerging a car. Overnight
temperatures were generally in the 60s and non thunderstorm winds
were from the south at around 10 mph.

Another round of storms is forecast to develop later this
afternoon into the evening hours, with severe storms possible over
much of Iowa, northern Missouri, Illinois, and southern Wisconsin.
Additional thunderstorm chances are forecast late Monday night
into Tuesday across Iowa, southern Minnesota, southern Wisconsin,
and northern Illinois.

Hot and humid conditions are expected by the middle of the week
and continue into the early part of the weekend. The hottest days
looks to be Thursday and Friday, where heat index values may reach
105 degrees.
