Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1232 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

Showers and thunderstorms moved across much of western and
central Iowa overnight as a cold front approached the state. Most
locations saw anywhere from one half inch to an inch in the
western half of the state although some localized amounts reached
two inches. Meanwhile, far eastern Iowa remained dry overnight as
clouds moved overhead. Early morning temperatures ranged from the
upper 60s in the southeast to the mid 50s in far northwest Iowa.

The cold front will pass east through Iowa today and into the Ohio
River valley by tonight. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are
forecast to exit the state by this afternoon and cooler and drier
air overspread the Plains into the Mississippi River valley by
this evening. Highs today will have quite a spread, as
temperatures should be in the mid 60s across northwestern Iowa, to
the mid 80s across southeast Iowa. Central Iowa should be in the
low to mid 70s.

The cooler and drier weather will then hold on for
much of the upcoming week as Canadian high pressure drops into the
Midwest. Temperatures much closer to normal are expected with
little threat of rainfall in Iowa and nearby surrounding areas
through next Friday. Highs should be in the 60s and 70s, with lows
in the 40s and 50s.
