Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
456 AM CDT Thu Aug 24 2017

Clouds and showers have been on the increase across Iowa overnight.
Early this morning clouds associated with a push of warmer air aloft
continue over most of the area. Scattered light showers and a few
thunderstorms are also over the central third of the state. Temperatures
remained in the mid 50s to lower 60s with the cloud cover and light
south winds.

A warm front over Nebraska and western Iowa associated with weak low
pressure just to the west of Iowa will continue to lift warmer air
across the region today through tonight. This in combination with a
few weak upper level features crossing the region from the Northern
Plains into the Great Lakes will result in light showers and isolated
thunderstorms today...again tonight and Friday into Friday night. The
showers will be widely scattered enough that there will be dry stretches
over the region with periods of light precipitation. The best chances
for the light rain will be mainly over the northern half of the state
through Friday night. On Saturday a stronger front will move east
through the region resulting in a better chance of showers and
thunderstorms Saturday through Sunday ending Sunday night. Highs over
the next several days will be mainly in the 70s to lower 80s with
little change expected even into next week. Showers may remain over
the east on Monday as an upper level trough of low pressure lingers
over the region.
