There were a wide range in temperatures across Iowa this afternoon
with readings in the mid 50s over northern Iowa and lower 80s over the
far southeast including the Keokuk and Fort Madison areas. Clouds
enshrouded much of the central and northern portions of the state
while more sunshine was observed across the south. The wind was mainly
out of the north at 10 to 20 mph with a few higher gusts.

Significant severe weather will impact a large area including Kansas
and Oklahoma through this evening. A few isolated severe storms may
reach north into southern Iowa and Nebraska overnight as the entire
region of precipitation lifts north. This precipitation will be
ongoing Friday morning before ending. Friday will be cool with highs
only in the upper 40s over northern Iowa and southern Minnesota and
50s elsewhere. Additional showers and thunderstorms are expected by
late Friday into early Saturday. The primary impact with this activity
will be the potential for heavy rainfall. The precipitation will end
through the day Saturday. Cool conditions will persist through Sunday
though drier conditions are forecast to end the weekend.
