WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
449 PM CDT FRI OCT 17 2014

BREEZY AND COOLER CONDITIONS WERE THE STORY OF THE DAY THROUGHOUT
IOWA. NORTHWESTERLY WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH WITH HIGH GUSTS WERE
COMMON ACROSS THE STATE...WHICH WHEN COMBINED WITH LOW STRATUS
CLOUDS...KEPT TEMPERATURES CONFINED IN THE LOW 50S NORTH TO MID
60S SOUTH FOR HIGHS. BY LATE IN THE AFTERNOON THE SKIES HAD
CLEARED OUT OVER MUCH OF THE SOUTHWEST HALF OF IOWA BUT THE CLOUDS
WERE HANGING ON ACROSS THE NORTHEAST.

A DRY AND PLEASANT WEEKEND IS IN STORE FOR THE REGION WITH HIGH
PRESSURE PASSING THROUGH ON SATURDAY. A WEAK SYSTEM TRACKS
SOUTHEASTWARD OVER THE AREA ON SUNDAY...BUT IS EXPECTED TO BRING
LITTLE MORE THAN AN INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER. HIGHS WILL START IN
THE 50S FOR SATURDAY BUT RISE INTO THE UPPER 50S EAST TO LOW 70S
WEST FOR SUNDAY. A STRONG RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE
WESTERN PLAINS FOR THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK...FACILITATING THE
CONTINUED STREAK OF SEASONABLE AND DRY FALL WEATHER.
