Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1116 AM CDT Tue Oct 10 2017

Increased cloud cover with scattered rain showers was the main story
overnight throughout Iowa. Overnight low temperatures dropped into the
low to mid 40s for central and southern Iowa. In northern Iowa, low
temperatures were in the upper 30s. Winds have been northerly at 5 to
10 miles per hour. The cloud cover remained and rain showers spread in
coverage through western Iowa and moved into the central part of the
state throughout the morning hours. Rainfall totals through the late
morning hours ranged from a few hundredths of a inch to nearly three
quarters of an inch. With the dense cloud cover, temperatures have
remained in the mid 40s. Doppler radar continues to show wide spread
rain showers throughout central and eastern Iowa. A few locations have
heard thunder.

Conditions throughout the rest of the region have been similar to that
of Iowa, with wide spread cloud cover, rain showers, and temperatures
only the mid 40s. This is associated with a low pressure system
centered over of southeast Missouri.

For the rest of today, cloudy conditions and moderate rain showers
will continue for Iowa as this low pressure system works its way out
of the Midwest. An isolated thunderstorm is possible. Rain
accumulations of 1 to 1 and a half inches are expected across the
state. With the lack of sunshine, temperatures will not drastically
increase. Central and Southern Iowa will only reach the lower 50s.
Portions of northern and northwestern Iowa will struggle to make into
the 50s. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 40s for most of the
state, with a few upper 30s further north. For tomorrow, cloud cover
will be scattered, but conditions overall should be drier than today.
