Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
530 PM CDT Thu Jul 28 2016

It was a very pleasant summer afternoon throughout the state with
most areas seeing mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Thicker
clouds could be found over northeast Iowa, which helped to keep
temperatures cool. Highs this afternoon topped out in the upper
60s northeast to the low 80s south with winds from the north at 5
to 10 mph.

Broad high pressure over the far northern plains will meander
east over the next few days, bringing continued cool temperatures
to the region for Friday and Saturday. Warmer air will arrive for
the end of the weekend and next week as highs return to the 80s
and 90s with higher humidity values. The chances for showers and
storms should be relegated to southern Iowa and adjacent states by
Friday and then only sporadic chances for precipitation into the
weekend. Better chances for showers and thunderstorms will also
arrive for the region with the warmer air Sunday into Monday.
