Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
437 AM CDT Sun Sep 18 2016

High clouds were noted across Iowa overnight an a couple of
showers tried to get going across the North but only managed to
produce a few sprinkles as of 4 AM. Temperatures at 4 AM were
generally in the lower to mid 50s across the state but a few
locations in West central into Northwest Iowa reported
temperatures in the lower 60s. The wind was Southwest at 5 to 10
mph across the West and light and variable elsewhere which is
likely why temperatures were a little warmer in Western locations.

We will be heading into a warmer but unsettled week ahead. Today
will be sunny with highs around 80. Tonight into Monday a weak
weather system will bring a chance for showers and thunderstorms
North and East. Tuesday into Wednesday another system will bring a
little better chance for showers and storms...some of which could
be strong. The system on Tuesday will drop a frontal boundary
across the region that will stall and remain over the Upper
Midwest for much of the rest of the week...moving very little. There
will be daily chances for storms mainly in the late day and
nighttime hours. Specific severe threats and the location of any
heavy rain potential will be better defined in the coming days
when the track of weather disturbances and the exact location of
the frontal boundary becomes more clear. At least highs will be
quite summer-like with readings from 75 to 85.
