WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
508 AM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

Thunderstorms moved across much of Iowa overnight and early this
morning. These storms brought locally heavy rainfall to portions of
northwest Iowa. Gusty winds in excess of 40 mph and small hail also
occurred with the strongest storms. Temperatures at 5 am ranged from
the low to mid 60s through the Mississippi valley while reading were
in the upper 60s to mid 70s over central Iowa. The wind was breezy
from the south to southwest at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts.

The area of thunderstorms will gradually shift east into Wisconsin and
Illinois this morning. Additional storms are expected to develop this
afternoon in the vicinity of a boundary that will set up across
central Iowa. These storms may rapidly become severe with large hail,
damaging winds and isolated tornadoes possible. In addition, locally
heavy rainfall is likely. These storms will settle slowly south into
southern Iowa and northern Missouri this evening. Another round of
strong storms will arrive on Thursday. Again severe weather and heavy
rainfall will be possible. The precipitation will depart on Friday
followed by dry conditions for Saturday.
