507 PM CDT Sat May 19 2018

It was a very nice start to the day, but showers and thunderstorms
quickly developed in southern Iowa by early afternoon. This activity
slowly moved north into central Iowa, bringing with it moderate to
heavy rainfall and some small hail. A few locations saw appreciable
rainfall in excess of 1 to 2 inches, mainly in central and south
central Iowa. As of 5 PM the showers and thunderstorms were still
tracking north into northern Iowa. Additional showers and storms are
possible this evening into the overnight, but widespread activity is
not likely.

Cool northerly winds and widespread cloud cover will hold temperatures
back on Sunday as highs only top out in the 60s. Some parts of
northern Iowa may struggle to get out of the 50s. Scattered showers
will possible as well, along with a few rumbles of thunder during the
evening hours. Conditions dry out for Monday as a slow warming trend
begins. Highs from the middle through the end of the week will return
to the 80s. Periodic chances for showers and thunderstorms remain in
