WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
500 AM CDT TUE SEP 2 2014

A PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKY WAS REPORTED ACROSS IOWA DURING THE
OVERNIGHT HOURS.  AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE PASSING ACROSS THE
STATE BROUGHT MORE SHOWERS AND STORMS TO WESTERN AND NORTH CENTRAL
IOWA DURING THE OVERNIGHT.  A FEW STORMS PRODUCED 40 TO 50 MPH WIND
GUSTS AND SMALL HAIL.  VISIBILITIES DROPPED TO BETWEEN ONE AND TWO
MILES IN MODERATE RAINFALL.  THERE WAS ALSO SOME PATCHY FOG REPORTED
ACROSS THE STATE.  BY 5 AM TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE STATE RANGED FROM
THE MID 50S ACROSS THE WEST TO THE MID 60S ACROSS THE EAST.  THE FAR
SOUTHEAST REPORTED A TEMPERATURE OF 70.  THE WIND WAS LIGHT AND
VARIABLE.

AFTER THE UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE SHIFTS EAST ACROSS THE REGION THIS
MORNING THERE WILL BE A BIT OF A BREAK FROM RAINFALL.  TODAY SHOULD
BE QUITE SUNNY WITH SEASONAL TEMPERATURES AND NOT VERY HUMID.  THIS

THE REGION TONIGHT BRINGING WARM...HUMID AND UNSTABLE AIR BACK INTO
THE REGION.  THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY.
FOR LATE WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER SOUTH

OF THE MIDWEST AND A STRONG COLD FRONT MOVING ACROSS THE AREA.
ADDITIONAL THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FROM WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
EARLY FRIDAY MORNING.  A FEW STORMS MAY BE SEVERE ALONG THE FRONT
AND HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE AS WELL.

ONCE THE COLD FRONT MOVES EAST ACROSS THE AREA TEMPERATURES WILL
FEEL RATHER FALL LIKE WITH HIGHS IN THE 70S AND LOWS IN THE 50S INTO
EARLY NEXT WEEK.  BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK A LARGE LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM ACROSS CANADA WILL DEVELOP A TROUGH OVER THE REGION AND WET
