Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
434 AM CDT Wed May 23 2018

It has been warm and humid across the region overnight, with light
southeast winds less than 10 mph and partly cloudy skies keeping
temperatures in the 60s in most areas. Scattered thunderstorms have
affected portions of northern Iowa and southern Minnesota, producing
locally heavy rainfall.

The storms in northern Iowa will gradually weaken and move out to the
northeast by around midday today. Temperatures and dewpoints will
climb to levels not seen since last year, with highs in the mid 80s
this afternoon. This is only the beginning of an unseasonably warm
weather pattern that will persist for the next week and beyond. In
fact by this weekend highs are forecast in the lower 90s across much
of the region. Thunderstorm chances will return between Thursday
afternoon and Friday night, but severe weather chances are low and
the holiday weekend appears generally dry.
