IT WAS A WET START TO THE DAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE STATE THIS
MORNING AS SHOWERS AND STORMS PUSHED NORTHWARD. A FEW AREAS IN
SOUTHWEST IOWA SAW OVERNIGHT RAINFALL IN EXCESS OF AN INCH...WHILE
MANY OTHER LOCATIONS SAW A HALF INCH OR LESS. MORNING LOWS WERE ON
THE CHILLY SIDE WITH LOW 40S PREVAILING AND A FEW UPPER 40S ACROSS
THE SOUTH. ADDING TO THE CHILL WERE BRISK EASTERLY WINDS THAT WERE
AS STRONG AS 20 MPH IN SOME LOCATIONS WITH GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 30
MPH. AS OF LATE THIS MORNING...SHOWERS AND STORMS CONTINUE TO MAKE
THEIR WAY NORTHWARD...COVERING ROUGHLY THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
STATE. TEMPERATURES HAD ONLY RISEN A COUPLE OF DEGREES IN MOST
LOCATIONS...INTO MID 40S TO LOW 50S...THANKS TO THE AMPLE CLOUD
COVER...EASTERLY WINDS...AND SHOWERS.

FOR THE REMAINDER OF TODAY...SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO
PUSH NORTHWARD THROUGH THE STATE...LEAVING MANY AREAS RELATIVELY
DRY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS. PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN AND
SOUTHWEST IOWA WILL SEE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF
STORMS...POTENTIALLY SEVERE THIS EVENING. OTHERWISE...EASTERLY
WINDS WILL CONTINUE IN ALL BUT SOUTHWEST IOWA WHERE WINDS WILL
TURN SOUTHERLY AND TEMPERATURES WILL TOP OUT NEAR 50 IN THE NORTH
AND UP TO THE MID 60S ACROSS THE SOUTH.

AS THE SYSTEM MOVES OUT OVERNIGHT TONIGHT AND THURSDAY
MORNING...SO TOO WILL THE SHOWERS AND STORMS. MUCH OF THURSDAY SHAPES
UP TO BE OVERCAST BUT DRY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES REMAINING COOL IN
THE UPPER 40S TO THE NORTH AND NEAR 60 IN THE SOUTH. FRIDAY TOO
WILL BE ON THE DRY SIDE WITH SLIGHTLY WARMER HIGHS IN THE 50S AND
LOW 60S. THE DRY WEATHER WILL BE SHORT LIVED HOWEVER AS THE NEXT
WEATHER MAKE PUSHES IN TO THE STATE OVER THE WEEKEND. SEVERE
WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED WITH THE WEEKEND SYSTEM...BUT WILL
PRODUCE RAIN ACROSS A MAJORITY...IF NOT ALL...OF THE STATE. HIGHS
THROUGH THE WEEKEND WILL REMAIN COOL IN THE 50S TO LOW 60S.
