Weather Summary for Iowa

353 AM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016
The system that brought showers and thunderstorms to Iowa late
Saturday into early Sunday and then cooler weather has moved well
north and east of the state. Some residual cloudiness which was in
place across eastern Iowa exited to the east overnight as cooler
air overspread the upper Midwest. Early morning temperatures were
nearly 20 degrees cooler than yesterday with readings ranging from
the mid 40s in the west to mid 50s east. Winds were from the west
statewide at 5 to 10 mph.
The storm that departed the state on Sunday will gradually drift
across the Great Lakes and cutoff just east of the Region for much
of the weak. This will keep Iowa under the influence of a cooler
Canadian airmass for much of the upcoming week with little threat
of precipitation and temperatures that will be at or below normal.
The only real concern for precipitation through next Saturday will
come Tuesday night into early Wednesday across eastern Iowa and
locations to the the east.
