Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
546 PM CDT Sat Jul 22 2017

A cool front moved south across Iowa today, bringing gradual relief
from the heat of the past several days. Temperatures have remained in
the low to mid 80s across about the northern half of the state, but
rose into the 90s in southern Iowa and are only now beginning to fall.
Winds have been from the northwest to north at around 10 mph or less.
Thunderstorms have developed across northern Missouri but Iowa remains
dry other than a few sprinkles.

A second front will drop across Iowa late Sunday. Before it moves
through temperatures will climb into the 90s in southern Iowa once
again, but thereafter we will see some real relief with highs only in
the upper 70s and 80s on Monday. On Tuesday and Wednesday temperatures
will again rise into the 90s across parts of southern and western
Iowa, but not to the levels seen in the last week. Thunderstorms will
return to the forecast from late Tuesday into early Thursday, with
some possibility for severe weather and heavy rain at times. Behind
these storms more persistent mild weather will return with daily highs
in the 80s through the end of the week.
