Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1031 AM CDT WED MAY 25 2016

Scattered showers and thunderstorms tracked across Iowa this
morning, bringing at least a couple of tenths of an inch of rain
to many locations with a few spots seeing over three quarters of an
inch. Areas not seeing rain at the moment were under mostly
cloudy to cloudy skies with a few areas of clearing to the far
east and northwest. Temperatures had risen into the upper 60s to
mid 70s by late morning with a south to southwest wind of 5 to 15
mph, with the exception of northeast Iowa where winds were light
from the northeast.

The rest of the morning and early afternoon will feature
continued showers and storms, with the coverage and intensity
lessening from west to east through the afternoon. There may be
another round of storms tonight, primarily south, but the better
threat for widespread thunderstorms will be Thursday afternoon and
night. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will all be
threats with the Thursday storms. The unsettled weather pattern
will continue on Friday, and unfortunately into the Memorial Day
weekend. Temperatures should stay on the warm side, with highs
ranging from the low to mid 80s on Thursday, with 70s and 80s into
the weekend.
