WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
510 AM CDT SAT OCT 18 2014

LOW CLOUDS WERE MOVING DOWN INTO IOWA FROM MINNESOTA BUT WERE
BREAKING UP AS THEY SANK SOUTH.  SO WHILE THE FAR NORTH AND THE WEST
SAW LOW CLOUDS OVERNIGHT...MUCH OF THE REST OF IOWA REPORTED CLEAR
TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES.  THE WIND OVERNIGHT WAS OUT OF THE NORTH AT
5 TO 15 MPH WITH A FEW HIGHER GUSTS SOUTHEAST.  TEMPERATURES BY 5 AM
RANGED FROM THE UPPER 30S TO LOWER 40S.  THE EXCEPTION WAS THE
SOUTHEAST WHERE READINGS WERE IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL DRIFT ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST TODAY BRINGING A
RATHER PLEASANT FALL DAY TO THE REGION.  WINDS WILL BE BETWEEN 5 AND
15 MPH AND ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOL...MAINLY IN THE
50S...THERE SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT SUN IN THE AFTERNOON.

AS THE HIGH SHIFTS OVER EASTERN IOWA LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT A LIGHT
SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL RETURN TO WESTERN IOWA AND LOCATIONS WEST WHILE
EASTERN IOWA AND ILLINOIS REMAIN UNDER THE HIGH WHICH WILL BRING
COOLER AIR TO THAT REGION AND PATCHY FROST AS WELL.

ON SUNDAY AN UPPER LEVEL FEATURE WILL PUSH ACROSS THE NORTHERN
PLAINS AND NORTHEAST IOWA.  THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER
BUT THE AIRMASS SHOULD BE TOO DRY FOR ANY APPRECIABLE PRECIPITATION
WITH THIS FEATURE.  HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD BACK INTO THE REGION
FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.  ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM WILL PREPARE
TO MOVE INTO THE REGION WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY AND THIS SYSTEM
WILL BE A LITTLE BETTER ORGANIZED AND HAVE SOME BETTER MOISTURE TO
WORK WITH.  HOWEVER IT IS UNCLEAR HOW MUCH PRECIPITATION WILL
ACTUALLY MAKE IT INTO THE AREA.  TEMPERATURES WILL BE RATHER MILD
ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST NEXT WEEK WITH HIGH IN THE 50S AND 60S AND
LOWS IN THE 40S AND 50S.
