Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1057 AM CDT Sat Aug 19 2017

Other than some light fog from northwest into central Iowa this
morning, skies were generally mostly sunny across the state. Early
morning lows were in the lower 50s north to the lower and middle 60s
central and south. By late morning, temperatures had warmed into the
middle 60s northwest to the middle 70s south. Winds were still light
and variable.

A frontal boundary stretched from Kansas into Missouri and central
Illinois. High pressure will build into the region behind the front.
For the remainder of the weekend, dry conditions will prevail Saturday
then give way to shower and storm chances Sunday and into early next
week. Near seasonal temperatures are expected with highs in the 70s
and 80s north to 80s and 90s south. But by Sunday, highs will be back
into at least the low to mid 80s state wide with some areas in
central and southern Iowa possibly hitting the low 90s.

The concern or interest across the midwest will be on Monday for the
eclipse. Unfortunately, clouds appear fairly likely in the area,
blocking out the view for at least some of the state. For those
traveling into the total eclipse path, the best opportunity for clear
skies looks to be westward into Nebraska versus southward into Kansas
and Missouri, though Nebraska is not out of the woods yet either.
