WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1039 AM CDT SAT AUG 22 2015

MILD LOW TEMPERATURES DOMINATED ACROSS THE STATE...GENERALLY IN
THE LOW TO MID 60S...THANKS IN LARGE PART TO CONSISTENT SOUTHERLY
WINDS. THOSE SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND
TOP OUT THIS AFTERNOON AROUND 20MPH IN MANY LOCATIONS...WITH GUSTS
TO AROUND 30MPH. HIGHS THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE VERY SIMILAR TO THE
YESTERDAY...IN THE LOW TO MID 80S. WHILE MUCH OF THE DAY TODAY
WILL BE PLEASANT...IT WILL ALL CHANGE LATE THIS AFTERNOON WHEN
STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO FIRE ALONG AND AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT THAT
WILL SWEEP INTO NORTHWEST IOWA AND ACROSS THE STATE THROUGH THE
EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS. THE WESTERN THIRD OF THE STATE WILL
SEE THE GREATEST SEVERE THREAT...WHERE LARGE HAIL...DAMAGING
WINDS...AND A FEW TORNADOES ARE POSSIBLE. AS THE EVENING
PROGRESSES...THE STORMS WILL CONGEAL INTO A LINE AND THE THREAT
WILL TRANSITION MORE TO DAMAGING WINDS AND HEAVY RAINFALL.

AFTER THE STORMS AND COLD FRONT PUSH THROUGH THE STATE
OVERNIGHT...SUNDAY WILL BE A DRY AND COOL DAY WITH HIGHS ONLY INTO
THE LOW 70S. MID 70S HIGHS WILL STICK AROUND THROUGH MID WEEK AS A
RIDGE SLOWLY WORKS INTO THE REGION. BY THE END OF THE WEEK AND
INTO NEXT WEEKEND...TEMPERATURES LOOK TO INCH BACK TOWARDS THE LOW
80S. THE NEXT ROUND OF PRECIPITATION AFTER TONIGHT SHAPES UP TO BE
THURSDAY NIGHT AND INTO FRIDAY AS A DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE
LARGER FLOW.
