Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
452 AM CDT TUE MAY 31 2016

Thunderstorms which were scattered across many areas of the state
last evening dissipated into the early morning hours. However, a
line of thunderstorms which passed through the Plains on Monday
evening moved into western Iowa early this morning with additional
rainfall and some gusty winds, mainly in northwest Iowa.
Elsewhere, skies were partly cloudy with light south winds.
Temperatures during the early morning hours were in the low to mid
60s statewide.

A cold front will push from the Missouri River valley through Iowa
today. Thunderstorms are expected to develop along this boundary
by midday in central Iowa into Minnesota. The storms will produce
locally heavy rain along with some small hail and gusty winds as
they push east. Meanwhile, high pressure will build into the
plains with cooler and drier conditions. The precipitation in Iowa
and surrounding locations will push east tonight into Wednesday as
the drier air spread across the region. Relatively tranquil
weather is expected on Wednesday into Thursday across much of the
Midwest along with cooler temperatures. The next threat of
precipitation arrives late Thursday night into Friday with the
threat of a few thunderstorms across the upper Midwest.
