Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
448 AM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017

Long awaited showers and thunderstorms moved across the southwest
quadrant of the state, basically south of Interstate 80 and west of
Interstate 35. The leading edge of this system was producing periods
of heavy rainfall with wind gusts around 40 mph. Pre dawn temperatures
were in the middle 60s northeast to the lower 70s south and west.
Outside of the thunderstorm winds, light and variable winds were
common.

A slowly moving boundary continued to hang around southeast Nebraska,
southern Iowa and northern Missouri into Illinois. Chances for
showers storms will continue into Monday, with widespread welcome
precipitation possible late Monday and Monday night. Unfortunately,
this also means the potential is there for extensive cloud cover
during the solar eclipse.

A strong front will move through early Tuesday and bring drier air
into the region. No precipitation is expected through the middle and
latter half of the week as highs return to the 70s to near 80
degrees.
