Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1050 AM CDT Wed May 16 2018

There was just a bit of fog across parts of Iowa this morning, mostly
southern Iowa, but other than that it was a pretty comfortable start
to the day. Lows were on the cool to mild side ranging form the low
50s up north to the upper 50s to the south along with light and
variable winds. For much of the morning the skies were nearly crystal
clear across Iowa, and while not too much has changed by late morning,
some fair weather cumulus has started to blossom over parts of
southern Iowa as temperatures have climbed into the low to mid 70s

The week will end on a quiet, albeit warm, note. Temperatures will
reach into the low to mid 80s today and generally remain there through
Friday. While it would be nice to say the weekend will be dry and
comfortable, it does not appear that will be the case. Temperatures
will dip down into the mid 60s to mid 70s for highs by Sunday, and
this time of year that can be a good indicator of precipitation
chances. Showers and storms do indeed come back into the forecast this
weekend, namely starting to move in overnight Friday into Saturday
and lingering into Sunday. The threat for severe weather continues to
appear low at this point in time.
