Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
436 AM CDT Tue May 15 2018

Scattered thunderstorms continued across southern Iowa overnight.
Although these storms stayed below severe limits early this morning,
quarter to golf ball sized hail was reported near Leon and Humeston
Monday evening. Farther north, low clouds and dense fog crossed the
Minnesota border into Iowa after midnight with many locations along
and north of Highway 20 reporting visibilities of a quarter mile or
less. Temperatures heading toward daybreak were mild for mid May with
readings from the middle 50s north to middle 60s south. Winds were
generally north at 5 to 15 mph.

The scattered storms over southeast Iowa and adjacent portions of
Missouri and Illinois will come to an end this morning leading to
several days of warm but dry conditions. Highs will often be in the
lower to middle 80s by midweek with seasonal humidity levels. The next
appreciable chances for showers and thunderstorms do not arrive until
Friday through the Siouxland area, and then region wide from Friday
Night through early Sunday. The best chances appear to be around
