Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
306 AM CDT Mon May 27 2019

A large pocket of showers, with a few rumbles of thunder, moved across
central to northern Iowa shortly after midnight this morning. 
Rainfall amounts with this precipitation were generally in the one- 
quarter to one-half of an inch range. Meanwhile, a line of strong to 
severe storms has been pushing east to northeast throughout the early 
morning hours. Salina, Kansas had a measured wind report of 76 miles 
per hour with this line. This line will be impacting northern Missouri
and possibly southern to southwestern Iowa by sunrise this morning. 
Additional showers and storms will be surging ahead and impacting 
western to northern Iowa by sunrise as well. Severe weather is not 
expected with this line, however, heavy rainfall may lead to flooding 
concerns in already rain-soaked areas.

Temperatures during the morning hours were slightly warmer than they
have been the past few morning's as temperatures were generally 
within a few degrees on either side of 65 degrees. Normal low 
temperatures for this time of year are in the low to mid 50s, placing 
temperatures for this morning around 10 degrees above normal. Winds 
were generally from the east to southeast at around 5 to 10 mph, with 
occasional gusts around 15 to 20 mph.

For the rest of today, expect rain to continue across much of the
state. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible, especially in
central to southern Iowa. For Tuesday, strong to severe thunderstorms
are possible once again. Temperatures should be in the 70s, with lows
in the 50s to 60s.
