Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1052 AM CDT Sun Sep 17 2017

Another round of showers and thunderstorms moved through parts of the
state overnight as a cold front pushed east. The heaviest rainfall
over the last 24 hours was observed in drought stricken southwest and
south central Iowa, where generally 1 to 2 inches of rain fell. Lows
overnight varied widely due to cloud cover. Clear skies in northwest
Iowa allowed temperatures to fall into the upper 30s and 40s, while
cloud cover to the south and east held temperatures in the 50s and
60s. Northwest winds behind the cold front will result in cooler but
dry conditions today with highs in the 60s and 70s.

An active pattern will continue through this week with additional
chances for more showers and thunderstorms, beginning late tonight
into Monday. The potential for more rainfall returns to parts of the
state on Wednesday with periodic chances continuing through the end
of the week. The potential for severe weather is low through
Wednesday, but the threat is more uncertain toward the latter half of
the week. Southerly winds will push highs back into the 70s and 80s
for most of the week.
