Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1046 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

What a difference a couple days makes in June. After highs well into
the 80s and even low 90s in some cases the past few days, temperatures
began to come down last night as a cold front traversed the state.
While not everyone saw storms overnight from the frontal passage,
many of those that did picked up a quick half inch to inch or so of
welcome rain. Lows this morning reflected that cold front moving
through with northwest Iowa falling into the low 50s while southeast
Iowa remained in the upper 60s. As of late this morning, winds state
wide were out of the northwest, with the strongest winds moving into
northwest Iowa at around 15 to 20 mph.

The theme for the next few days will be cool, below normal conditions
with highs predominantly in the upper 60s to 70s into early next week.
Much of the area will remain on the dry side, though a few scattered
showers and storms may be seen across the northeast both Saturday and
Sunday afternoon. The next significant chance for precipitation looks
to move in mid-week as temperatures also begin to rise with the return
of southerly winds.
