Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1100 AM CDT Fri Aug 18 2017

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms that moved across central
Iowa earlier this morning had moved into eastern Iowa and continued to
weaken. By late morning, skies were partly to mostly sunny over
eastern Iowa with spotty showers and storms while western Iowa was
mostly sunny. Early morning low temperatures were in the middle 50s to
lower 60s, warming into the mid 60s to mid 70s by late morning. Winds
have been light and variable.

Low pressure was over eastern Nebraska this morning and will continue
to advance eastward. Dry conditions are likely through the weekend as
high pressure takes over. Heat and humidity return on Sunday as some
parts of the area reach into the 90s. The next low pressure system to
cross the region will kick off showers and storms beginning Sunday
night. Chances for precipitation will continue into Monday night.
Cloud cover associated with this system may impact the solar eclipse
viewing. The most likely area for expansive cloud cover will be across
northern Iowa with more scattered cloud cover further south. Hot and
humid conditions are likely where sunshine does occur.
