Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1038 AM CDT Sat Jun 24 2017

There was a bit of a chill in the air this morning, especially across
the northwest half of the state where lows dipped into the mid and
upper 40s. The remainder of the state was not quite as chilly in the
low to mid 50s. With temperatures certainly on the cool to cold side
for June, the question becomes whether or not this is welcome versus
the heat and humidity? Before you decide, keep in mind the highs
through the weekend and early next week will be primarily in the 70s
with a fair amount of sunshine.

As just mentioned, highs will be cool for this time of the year in the
70s into early next week before warmer temperatures begin to return.
Winds will also be a bit on the breezy side through the weekend with
northwest winds in the 15 to 20 mph range at times and gusts a bit
higher. So, what changes are in store come mid-week? Temperatures will
creep back into the 80s by Wednesday, including a few spots to the
west touching 90. Highs in the 80s will stick around to end the week
for the most part before cooler air once again returns next weekend.
The weather will not be quiet all of next week though with a few good
chances for storms looking to move through the area Wednesday and on
through the remainder of the work week. While there looks to be the
potential for severe weather, details are unclear at the moment.
