Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1014 AM CDT Thu May 17 2018

An area of high pressure dominated Iowa this morning, meaning quiet
conditions, clear skies, and cool lows. Morning lows were
predominantly in the mid to upper 50s, with a few low laying areas
down into the low 50s. With the high pressure slowly departing, winds
predominantly remained light and variable across Iowa late this
morning, along with temperatures that have soared into the upper 60s
to low 70s.

Today and tomorrow will remain on the quiet side weather wise, leading
into a potentially wet weekend. With the quiet weather continuing to
end the week, highs will stay mostly in the low do mid 80s ahead of
cooler conditions moving in later Friday. Shower and storm chances
begin to move back into the state from the west Friday night and will
linger through Sunday. The best opportunity for widespread showers or
storms will be Saturday evening and overnight. Prior to that, western
Iowa will see the best chances for storms, while eastern Iowa may
remain dry much of Saturday. Highs, as hinted earlier, cool off a bit
during the weekend, falling into the upper 60s and mid 70s, before
warming back up by mid-week next week.
