Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1026 AM CDT Sun Aug 13 2017

It was not quite the start to the day as it was yesterday morning with
cloud cover moving across the state. Many areas saw lows in the upper
50s to low 60s, quite a bit warmer than Saturday morning. Along with
those clouds were areas of sprinkles to light rain, but struggled to
make it too far east of Interstate 35 this morning. All in all, it was
enough to get the ground wet in most places. By late this morning,
temperatures were highly dependent on cloud cover and rain. Areas with
clouds and rain were only a few degrees warmer than morning lows,
while areas with thinner clouds or seeing sunshine, had risen into the
low 70s.  

Temperatures will remain comfortable today, but will begin to rise
back into warm and hot territory to start the week. Highs by Tuesday
will reach into the mid and upper 80s from Highway 30 on south.
Fortunately it does not look to get any warmer from there as a weak
front will move through with some rain chances and drop highs back a
few degrees into the low to mid 80s to finish the week. While there
are some chances for a few scattered showers and storms Monday and
Tuesday, the best opportunity for widespread rainfall will be Tuesday
night through Wednesday.
