Bordered by Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota, it covers 56,271 sq mi (145,741 sq km). Its capital is Des Moines. The Des Moines River flows across the state from northwest to southeast. The Mississippi River forms its eastern boundary, while the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River define portions of its western boundary. The Sauk, Fox, Iowa, and Sioux peoples lived in what is now the state of Iowa when French explorers Louis Jolliet and Jacques Marquette arrived in 1673. The U.S. acquired Iowa as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Following the Black Hawk War and purchase of eastern Iowa from the Sauk and Fox in the 1830s, settlement by Euro-Americans advanced rapidly. Iowa became a territory in 1838 and was made the 29th state in 1846. After the American Civil War, railroad expansion attracted large groups of immigrants from the eastern states and from Europe. After World War I population growth slowed. Iowa is one of the most agriculturally productive states and leads the U.S. in the production of corn (maize) and soybeans, as well as in the raising of hogs. After the farm crisis of the 1980s, it was forced to diversify its economy, and services became the dominant economic activity of the state.

There's more information than I could possibly list here but I want to provide links to further your investigation if you so choose. So, here's a link the Official State Home Page of Iowa. The official tourism Web site of Iowa has a lot going for it.
Weather information is also available by cities. Just visit Iowa Weather - Average Temperatures and Rainfall and then click on the name of the city you are interested in to find data for that specific city. And what state profile would be complete without a link to their Top Attractions and Oddities?!?
