Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
552 PM CDT Thu Aug 17 2017

Surface low pressure continued to move it`s way through Minnesota and
northern Wisconsin today, leaving Iowa on the backside with slowly
clearing skies and breezy northwest winds. While the winds were
breezy, upwards of 15 to 20 mph at times, it was overall a fairly
comfortable day with highs predominantly in the 70s and dew points in
the 50s to low 60s. By early evening, much of the remaining cloud
cover was relegated to northeast and eastern Iowa and will continue to
clear overnight.

Conditions will generally remain on the seasonable to cool side into
Saturday, with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s, but will soar into the
upper 80s and low 90s for many by Sunday and Monday. Through early
next week, there will be a couple of opportunities for some showers
and storms, the first of which will move through tomorrow then again
on Monday and Tuesday. With Monday being the solar eclipse, there
stands a fair chance that clouds will put a damper on the event for
some through the Upper Plains.
