Scattered showers and thunderstorms were moving across northwest and
north central Iowa this morning. Rainfall amounts with this activity
have been light and less than one quarter inch. Temperatures at 11 am
ranged from the mid 60s northwest to the low to mid 70s elsewhere. The
wind was from the south at 10 to 20 mph along with higher gusts.

The precipitation from this morning will gradually diminish. This will
be followed by a lull this afternoon. Conditions are expected to be
hot and humid as temperatures once again push the 90 degree mark.
Thunderstorm will increase across central Kansas and Nebraska by mid
to late afternoon. A few of these storms will likely become severe in
addition to the potential for heavy rainfall. This activity will
spread northeast this evening into central Iowa and will maintain a
threat for severe weather. Another round of showers and thunderstorms
will arrive on Wednesday as an area of low pressure moves across the
region. A threat for severe weather will be possible again with this
activity. Cooler temperatures will arrive on Thursday. Shower and
thunderstorm chances will ramp up again late Thursday and through
Friday. A few showers may linger into Saturday, but for the most part
the weekend looks cooler and dry.
