Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
502 AM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

Clouds remained widespread across Iowa overnight as low pressure took
shape across the central Plains overnight. Winds increased from the
east as low clouds spread into much of southern and central Iowa. Rain
had developed in the south and far west as moisture streamed toward
the state ahead of the system. Early morning readings ranged from the
upper 30s in far northern Iowa to the mid 40s across the southwest
third of the state.

The low in the Plains will lift gradually northeast today as moisture
streams into the Midwest. Rain is expected to become widespread across
Iowa and surrounding areas by this afternoon with light to moderate
rainfall. Showers and thunderstorms are expected farther south in
portions of Kansas and Missouri with some severe weather by this
afternoon from central into southern Missouri. The system will drift
slowly east tonight across Missouri with rain continuing across much
of Iowa into Wisconsin and Illinois. There may be some rain and snow
mix farther north in Wisconsin where temperatures will dip close to
freezing overnight. By Thursday, the threat of rain will persist into
Iowa and states to the east as the system slowly heads toward the Ohio
River Valley. Friday should bring calmer weather to much of the
Midwest with some partial clearing and seasonable temperatures.
