Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1034 AM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

After a couple of comfortable mid-July days, southerly winds began to
return across the state as high pressure moved off to the east. The
most notable difference, especially across the west and central areas
of the state, were the increasing dew points. Overnight lows varied
quite a bit from west to east as a result of the returning warm winds,
with low to mid 60s to the west and low to mid 50s in the east. That
big difference continues this morning with temperatures ranging form
the low to mid 80s out west to the low 70s in the east. Conditions
were also notably more humid in the west and central areas of the
states as dew points had climbed back into the upper 60s and low 70s.

Temperatures today and well into next week will be on the warm to hot
side of things. Highs this weekend will primarily be in the upper 80s
and low 90s, then warming a few more degrees early in the week
resulting in highs reaching the mid 90s in a number of locations. Tie
in dew points in the upper 60s to low 70s and heat index values will
also approach and eclipse 100 in some locations. While temperatures
look to fall back a couple degrees to end the week, notable
temperature relief is not in the forecast over the next week. Some
relief in the form of rain may come, but not until mid-week and then
on through the end of the week. Even then, for the most part chances
look to be scattered versus state wide.
