Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
520 PM CDT Tue Sep 27 2016

Sunshine continued into Tuesday afternoon across the state of
Iowa. High pressure has begun to cross over into northern North
Dakota from Canada. With air flowing clockwise around this high,
much cooler and much drier Canadian air has been brought down
into the upper Midwest. Normal high temperatures for this time of
year are in the low 70s. Todays highs were close to that range,
topping out in the upper 60s to mid 70s. At 5 pm, the temperature
in Des Moines was 75 degrees, it was 71 in Waterloo, and the
temperature in Mason City was 68 degrees. Winds were from the west
to northwest at around 10 to 20 mph.

Skies should remain mostly clear overnight tonight and
temperatures will be near to slightly below normal. Normal lows
for this time of year are in the upper 40s, which is close to
where temperatures should be by 7 am Wednesday.

Wednesday afternoon looks to be the coolest day of the week across
Iowa as clouds associated with a lingering area of low pressure
located near the Great Lakes spread westward. This will keep highs
in the low to mid 60s Wednesday. For the rest of the week,
temperatures will climb back into the mid 60s to low 70s. The next
best chance for widespread rainfall is not until next week
