WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA  
1112 AM CDT THU AUG 16 2018  
 
IT WAS AN ACTIVE MORNING ON THE WEATHER FRONT OVER THE STATE OF IOWA.  
A BROAD SWATH OF SHOWERS AND A FEW EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS SLOWLY MOVED  
THROUGH WESTERN IOWA, BRINGING RAIN TO MANY SPOTS WEST OF INTERSTATE  
35. IN ADDITION TO THE PRECIPITATION, PATCHY FOG WAS OBSERVED OVER  
MANY PLACES TO THE EAST WITH VISIBILITY AS LOW AS A QUARTER MILE AT  
TIMES. WHILE THE FOG HAS MOSTLY DISSIPATED BY LATE MORNING, SHOWERS  
AND STORMS CONTINUE AS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE SLOWLY TRACKS INTO THE  
REGION. ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON, AND A FEW  
STORMS MAY BECOME SEVERE. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS ALSO POSSIBLE DUE  
TO SLOW STORM MOVEMENT.  
 
A FEW LINGERING SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE POSSIBLE FRIDAY IN EASTERN  
IOWA, BUT OTHERWISE THE FORECAST DRIES OUT THROUGH SATURDAY WITH HIGHS  
IN THE 80S. NEXT CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION WILL MOVE THROUGH SUNDAY AND  
MONDAY, WITH THE BEST CHANCES SUNDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY MONDAY. THE  
THREAT FOR SEVERE WEATHER IS UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME, BUT IT DOES LOOK  
POSSIBLE THAT SOME LOCATIONS WILL SEE AN INCH OR MORE OF RAINFALL.  
CONDITIONS LOOK TO DRY OUT AGAIN INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK BUT  
HIGHS WILL FALL SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL INTO THE MID 70S TO LOW 80S.
