Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1032 AM CDT Mon May 14 2018

Another day, another round of showers and storms. Or so the story has
gone the last few days. Once again showers and storms affected roughly
the southern half of the state overnight, with some of it drifting
into northern Iowa this morning. While most rainfall totals were under
an inch, a few spots did see in excess of an inch. With the aide of
ample cloud cover, lows were held in check primarily in the mid to
upper 50s. While most shower activity has ended across the state,
clouds remain in many spots across the state, with some sunshine being
seen in parts of southern and southeast Iowa. Temperatures late this
morning reflect the differences in cloudy and sunny skies, with
pockets of southern Iowa already in the mid 70s, while most of the
rest of Iowa remain in the low to mid 60s.

Another risk for strong storms exists today, namely from about Highway
30 on south this afternoon and evening. The main risks will be for
large hail and damaging winds. Thankfully, the storm activity calms
down for the next day or two after today, with opportunities not
returning until Thursday. In the meantime, temperatures will rise
through the first half of the week, with nearly state wide highs in
the low 80s by Wednesday.
