Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
513 PM CDT Sat Aug 19 2017

After a morning of fog and stratus clouds for much of the morning,
sunshine came out in full force across the state during the
afternoon. Temperatures were near to just below normal for mid August
in the upper 70s to mid 80s. A few storms will be possible tonight in
the western half of the state as the next low pressure system
approaches the area. Southerly winds tomorrow will push a warm, humid
air mass into the Upper Midwest, and continue the chance for
thunderstorms during the day. Highs will be in the 80s and low 90s,
although cloud cover associated with any thunderstorm activity will
lead to cooler temperatures in some areas.

Chances for showers storms will continue into Monday, with widespread
welcome precipitation possible late Monday and Monday night.
Unfortunately, this also means the potential is there for extensive
cloud cover during the solar eclipse. Those with viewing interests in
Iowa will need to closely monitor the forecast.

A strong front will move through early Tuesday and bring drier air
into the region. No precipitation is expected through the middle and
latter half of the week as highs return to the 70s to near 80
