WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
457 PM CDT WED AUG 26 2015

IT WAS ANOTHER PLEASANT AND SEASONABLY COOL DAY ACROSS THE STATE
WITH ONLY A FEW HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS STREAMING OVER WESTERN AND
CENTRAL IOWA THIS AFTERNOON. SMOKE FROM WILDFIRES IN THE WESTERN
UNITED STATES ALSO MADE SKIES HAZY STATEWIDE. HIGH TEMPERATURES
THIS AFTERNOON ROSE INTO THE MID TO UPPER 70S WITH LIGHT AND
VARIABLE WINDS IN THE EAST AND A SOUTHEASTERLY WIND IN THE WEST OF
5 TO 10 MPH.

HIGH PRESSURE THAT BROUGHT THE COOL AND DRY WEATHER TO THE REGION
WILL SHIFT EASTWARD THROUGH THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK...ALLOWING
A STORM SYSTEM TO MOVE OUT OF THE HIGH PLAINS AND INTO IOWA. THIS
LOW PRESSURE CELL WILL MEANDER OVER NEBRASKA...IOWA...AND ILLINOIS
FROM THURSDAY TO SATURDAY AND WILL BRING WITH IT THE CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT COULD BRING LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.
NORTHERN IOWA AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA WILL LIKELY SEE THE HIGHEST
RAINFALL AMOUNTS WITH THIS STORM. AFTER THE PASSAGE OF THIS
RAIN...LOOK FOR TEMPERATURES TO REBOUND BACK INTO THE 80S FOR
HIGHS AS A STRONG AND SLOW MOVING HIGH PRESSURE CELL ANCHORS
ITSELF OVER THE REGION.
