NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
458 AM CDT FRI OCT 17 2014

LOW CLOUDS SPILLED INTO THE NORTHWEST HALF OF THE STATE OVERNIGHT.
THE CLOUDS WERE BEING USHERED IN ON A NORTHWEST WIND THAT WAS
INCREASING TO 15 TO 25 MPH.  COLDER AIR IS ON ITS WAY INTO THE STATE
BUT AS OF 430 AM TEMPERATURES WERE STILL MILD READINGS IN THE LOWER

PRESENT AND WINDS WERE LIGHTER AND OUT OF THE WEST...HAD SLIPPED

A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL SHIFT OUT OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS
INTO THE GREAT LAKES.  AS IT DOES IT WILL CREATE A STRONG CYCLONIC

DAKOTAS INTO IOWA BY LATER THIS AFTERNOON.  TODAY WILL BE VASTLY
DIFFERENT FROM THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS.  LOW CLOUDS FROM THIS SYSTEM
WILL OVERSPREAD THE AREA THIS MORNING.  GRAY SKIES COUPLED WITH THE
STRONG NORTHWEST WIND AND COLDER AIR WILL MAKE IT FEEL LIKE FALL.
HIGHS TODAY WILL REACH THE MID 50S TO AROUND 60 FAR SOUTH.  EVEN
COLDER AIR WILL MOVE IN TONIGHT AND SATURDAY WITH LOWS EXPECTED TO
BE IN THE UPPER 30S TO LOWER 40S AND HIGHS FOR SATURDAY IN THE 50S.
SATURDAY NIGHT WILL BE A LITTLE COLDER WITH LOWS IN THE MID TO UPPER
30S THEN SUNDAY WILL MODERATE SOME WITH HIGHS IN THE 60S.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN REBUILD ACROSS THE REGION INTO NEXT WEEK
PRODUCING A DRY PERIOD WITH WARMING TEMPERATURES AND LITTLE CHANCE
FOR ANY PRECIPITATION.
