WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
523 PM CDT SUN MAY 17 2015

CLEAR TO MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES DOMINATED MUCH OF THE DAY ACROSS THE
STATE AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CONTINUED TO MOVE NORTHEAST THROUGH
MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN. WHILE IT WAS GENERALLY SUNNY...IT WAS NOT
THE MOST PLEASANT DAY WITH STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS STATE WIDE.
SUSTAINED WINDS THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND INTO THIS EVENING RANGED
FROM 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS AS HIGH AS 40 MPH. EVEN WITH THE
STRONG SOUTHERLY FLOW...HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE COOLER THAN
YESTERDAY REACHING THE LOW TO UPPER 70S. SHOWER AND STORM ACTIVITY
WILL MOSTLY MISS THE STATE...EXCEPT FOR SOME EXISTING STORMS AND
SHOWERS ACROSS FAR NORTHERN IOWA AND A FEW THAT WILL POP UP LATER
THIS EVENING AND NORTHEAST IOWA. SOME HIGH WINDS AND HAIL ARE THE
MAIN CONCERNS...WITH WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER NOT EXPECTED.

FOR THE WORK WEEK...THE BIG CHANGE WILL BE HIGH TEMPERATURES AS
MUCH AS 20 TO 25 DEGREES COOLER THAN THIS WEEKEND AS HIGH PRESSURE
MOVES IN. MONDAY WILL BE MILD FOR MOST OF THE STATE WITH
TEMPERATURES WELL INTO THE 60S...BUT THE NORTHEAST WILL FEEL THE
CHILL WITH HIGHS ONLY IN THE LOW TO MID 50S. TUESDAY WILL CONTINUE
THE COOLING TREND WITH HIGHS IN THE MID 50S TO LOW 60S AND
WEDNESDAY WILL LIKELY BE THE COOLEST WITH HIGHS ONLY INTO THE
MID TO UPPER 50S. LOWS THROUGH THIS TIME WILL BE IN THE UPPER 30S
TO LOW 40S...WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES ACROSS
THE FAR NORTHWEST TUESDAY MORNING. THE NEXT CHANCE FOR RAIN COMES
INTO THE AREA WEDNESDAY AND IS THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT CHANCE BEFORE
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.
