Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1113 AM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017

Quite the pattern change is underway over much of the Central Plains
today, with some of the effects already being felt in parts of Iowa
this morning. Temperatures in the northwest corner of the state
dropped to the upper 30s to near 40 overnight with brisk northerly
winds. Further south and east, temperatures were still mild in the 50s
and low 60s. Light scattered rain showers were evident on radar,
moving northeast.

More widespread rainfall is expected beginning this evening and
continuing into Wednesday. The colder air will advance further
southeast on Wednesday as much of the western and central tiers of the
state will only see temperatures holding steady in the 40s and low
50s, but some highs in the 60s will still be seen close to the
Mississippi River.

Below normal temperatures will continua through most of the next 7
days. Chances for rainfall dot the forecast through the end of the
week, but the most likely timeframe will be this weekend as a strong
area of low pressure moves through the region.
