Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
511 AM CDT Thu Oct 12 2017

Plenty of clouds were spread across eastern Iowa and were moving westward
into parts of western Iowa. Beneath these clouds, there were patches
of drizzle or fog. Where the clouds were the thickest and have resided
most of the night temperatures were in the low and middle 50s while
elsewhere temperatures had fallen into the 40s. Winds were becoming
from the south or southeast at 5 to 10 mph.

The aforementioned clouds will be slow to break and clear from west to
east through the day today. Where the clouds linger the longest is
where the high temperatures will be the lowest. So, highs will range
from around 60 degrees over eastern Iowa to the low 70s over western
Iowa. It will also be quite breezy across the state today as well. By
tonight, skies will be partly to mostly clear. However, a cold front
moving into the state will help clouds to gather and scattered showers
and thunderstorms are expected Friday into Saturday. Some of the
storms on Saturday may be strong to severe. By Sunday, drier and
cooler air will sweep into the state on winds from the northwest.
