NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1028 AM CDT WED SEP 24 2014

A BAND OF LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN MOVED ACROSS WESTERN IOWA DURING
THE EARLY MORNING. BY MID TO LATE MORNING...THE RAIN HAD ENTERED
CENTRAL INTO NORTHEAST IOWA. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WITH THIS SYSTEM
WERE GENERALLY ONE HALF TO ONE INCH. OUTSIDE OF THE RAIN...SKIES
WERE CLOUDY EXCEPT FOR THE FAR SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE STATE AND
THE NORTHWEST COUNTIES WHERE CLOUDS WERE BEGINNING TO CLEAR OUT.
EARLY MORNING LOWS WERE IN THE 50S AND LOWER 60S. BECAUSE OF THE
RAIN AND CLOUD COVER...THERE WAS LITTLE CHANGE TO TEMPERATURES
THROUGHOUT THE MORNING. SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST WINDS WERE 5 TO 15 MPH
WITH OCCASIONAL STRONGER GUSTS.

AN UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM OVER THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL CONTINUE TO
CROSS THE REGION TODAY...PRODUCING AREAS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE
RAINFALL. THIS SYSTEM WILL EXIT THE REGION TONIGHT. CONDITIONS
WILL DRY OUT WITH A WARM UP IN TEMPERATURES EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. TEMPERATURES WILL BE BELOW NORMAL TODAY AS CLOUDS
KEEP READINGS FROM CLIMBING AS MUCH. RELATIVELY QUIET WEATHER IS
EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE REGION FROM THURSDAY INTO MUCH OF THE
WEEKEND AS A LARGE UPPER HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE REGION.
THIS WILL ALSO HELP TO BOOST TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMAL BY SATURDAY
AND INTO SUNDAY.
