Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
557 PM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017

Good evening Seattle, correction, Iowa. It has at least felt a lot
like the Pacific Northwest of late with cool temperatures, cloudy
skies, and periods of light rain and showers. Today was obviously no
different with highs residing only in the mid to upper 40s across much
of the state, constant cloud cover, and periods of rain. The question
becomes, how much more below normal and dreary conditions are in
store for the state? Good question.

While rain has moved predominantly to the southern and easter parts of
the region, vacating most of Iowa, it will unfortunately return
overnight and through the day Sunday. Another half inch to inch of
rainfall could be seen across many locations. If that was not bad
enough news to round out the weekend, temperatures will remain
unseasonably cold ranging across the region northwest to southeast
from the mid 30s to around 60. Snow will be seen in the coldest areas
in the northwest, while thunderstorms will return further south and

Okay, so the end of the weekend will keep with the cold, wet, and
generally miserable conditions. What about the week? Monday will
remain on the wet and chilly side in the 40s and low 50s along with
windy conditions, but the rest of the week contains better news. Highs
will work back into the upper 50s and low 60s, with upper 60s and low
70s looking likely by next weekend. While a few small chances for a
shower or two may be possible during the week, no major system looks
to push through.
