Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
428 AM CDT Tue Oct 10 2017

It has been a cool, cloudy, and damp night across Iowa. Scattered
showers and isolated thunderstorms have affected mainly northern and
western portions of the state, as well as neighboring Nebraska and
Missouri. Winds have been from the north at 5 to 10 mph and
temperatures have fallen into the 40s through most of Iowa, but into
the 30s in northwestern Iowa and neighboring states. In fact,
freezing temperatures have been recorded just across the border in
southwest Minnesota and southeast South Dakota.

Showers and isolated thunderstorms will spread across much of Iowa
today, excepting the northwest corner, before exiting to the east
tonight. Accumulations of around an inch are expected in some southern
and eastern areas of the state. It will be a cold rain, with high
temperatures only in the 40s and 50s. Wednesday will again be mostly
cloudy, but dry with temperatures rebounding to around 60. On Thursday
temperatures will warm further, and by Friday forecast highs are in
the 75 to 80 degree range across about the southeast half of Iowa.
Shower and thunderstorm chances will then return to the region from
late Friday into Sunday.
