Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1129 AM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

Showers and storms covering the western third of the state earlier
this morning continued to advance eastward this morning. By late
morning, the rain was from northeast Iowa into central and south
central Iowa. The heaviest rains were over the northern third of the
state. Early morning lows were in the lower and middle 70s. Over the
areas where it had rained, temperatures changed very little. However,
over the eastern and southeastern counties, temperatures were in the
upper 70s and lower 80s. Light winds were rotating around low pressure
centered over western Iowa.

A cold front was located across Minnesota and Wisconsin this morning. The
cold front will slide south today into tonight crossing Iowa and
surrounding areas. Thunderstorms are expected along and ahead of the
front through tonight. Meanwhile, cooler air will spread across the
Dakotas into Minnesota later today as high pressure builds into the
upper Midwest. This cooler airmass will expand south into Iowa by
Thursday as the system affecting the region slides east. The more
seasonable and relatively drier weather will likely persist into much
of the upcoming weekend.
