Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
505 PM CDT Fri May 18 2018

Little change to the weather has been seen across Iowa over the last
couple days, as we were treated once again to an afternoon of partly
to mostly sunny skies and highs generally in the low to mid 80s. A
switch to more active weather is on the horizon though, as chances for
showers and thunderstorms move into the western half of the state this
evening and overnight. More widespread thunderstorm activity is
expected Saturday evening into Sunday, including the potential for a
few strong to severe storms. The main threat looks to be large hail and
damaging winds Saturday evening into the early overnight hours.
Locally heavy rain is also possible. The cloud cover and precipitation
will also cool temperatures down a bit with highs only in the 60s and
70s for Sunday.

Temperatures warm back up quickly early next week, but the weather
remains active with more showers and thunderstorms possible Tuesday
and Wednesday. The threat for severe storms looks low at this time.
Periodic chances for more precipitation will continue through the end
of the week as afternoon highs generally stay in the low to mid 80s.
