Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
514 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

Many small cumulus clouds are visible across the state right now on
satellite imagery, but other than these fluffy clouds the weather has
been quiet and pleasant today. Temperatures this afternoon rose into
the mid to lower 80s with dewpoints falling behind in the lower 60s to
lower 70s. As a high pressure moves in over Iowa, winds have shifted
to the north northeast allowing for a continuation of cooler and drier
air being funneled south. This cooler and drier air mass will allow
temperatures to drop tonight into the upper 50s to mid 60s.

The ridge of high pressure will persist over the central United States
into the weekend. Temperatures will be comfortable in the mid to lower
80s through Monday with dewpoints remaining low only in the 60s. Sunny
skies will stick with us into the beginning of next week. The next
chance for showers and thunderstorms is expected to be midweek across
the state. In addition, the warmth will return midweek with
temperatures pushing into the upper 80s to lower 90s as we get return
flow funneling in warm moist air from the south. Thankfully,
temperatures and dewpoints will return to more comfortable values by
the end of next week.
