Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1048 AM CDT Sun May 21 2017

Another cool, dreary start to the day across the state. Morning lows
ranged from the very chill upper 30s in northwest Iowa to the more
manageable upper 40s in eastern Iowa. Besides the chill and cloud
cover, breezy westerly winds and misty conditions piled onto the
misery. No matter how you chop it up, this morning was not ideal for
the latter half of May. By late this morning, not much had changed
with cloud cover still blanketed over the state, westerly winds around
20 mph and gusts to 30 mph or more, temperatures in the 40s to low
50s, and periods of light drizzle.

The good news moving forward across the region will be that
temperatures will rise back into the 70s for much of the week and
sunshine will make prolonged appearances. On the down side, periods of
rain and storms will make appearances during the week, including
Monday, Tuesday, and Friday as the most likely days. As already
mentioned, temperatures will climb back into the upper 60s and 70s for
most by tomorrow and generally remain through the week. Tuesday will
be a bit cooler though with upper 50s and 60s briefly returning.
