WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
542 PM CDT MON APR 14 2014

SUNSHINE RETURNED TO THE REGION ONE DAY AFTER THE DAILY RECORD
PRECIPITATION WAS DOUBLED IN DES MOINES. THE NORMAL HIGH
TEMPERATURE FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ACROSS THE REGION IS GENERALLY
IN THE UPPER 50S TO LOW 60S. THE COLDEST MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR
MONDAY IN DES MOINES IS 33 DEGREES. AS OF 5 PM...DES MOINES HAD A
HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 41 DEGREES...WATERLOO HAD A HIGH OF 37...AND
MILWAUKEE...WISCONSIN HAD AN AFTERNOON TEMPERATURE OF 33 DEGREES
WITH SNOW FALLING. THE SNOW IN MILWAUKEE IS FROM THE SYSTEM WHICH
BROUGHT THE RECORD RAINS TO PARTS OF IOWA ON SUNDAY. AS THAT
SYSTEM CONTINUES TO PUSH OFF TO THE EAST...HIGH PRESSURE HAS BEEN
FILLING IN BEHIND IT. WINDS IN BETWEEN THE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE
AND THE SUNDAY/S SYSTEM HAVE BEEN ON THE STRONG SIDE...BLOWING
FROM THE NORTH AT 20 TO 30 MPH...WITH GUSTS UPWARDS OF 35 MPH.

AS THE AFOREMENTIONED HIGH PRESSURE MOVES OVER
MINNESOTA...WINDS AND CLOUDS WILL WILL DECREASE. WINDS ARE
PROJECTED TO BE FROM THE NORTH TO NORTHWEST AT AROUND 5 TO 10 MPH
BY TUESDAY MORNING. TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO BE ON THE DECLINE AS
COOLER AIR WILL BE MOVING IN WITH THIS HIGH PRESSURE. LOWS FOR
TUESDAY MORNING WILL BE IN THE LOW TO MID 20S ACROSS THE REGION.
AS A RESULT...MAKE SURE TO BRING INSIDE OR COVER ANY TENDER
VEGETATION.

SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL RETURN TO THE REGION BEGINNING LATE TUESDAY
AFTERNOON...WHICH WILL HELP TO WARM TEMPERATURES BACK UP INTO THE
MID 40S TO LOW 50S BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON...AND TO THE 50S AND 60S
BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THE NEXT BEST CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION
COMES WEDNESDAY INTO THE THURSDAY AS LOW PRESSURE WILL BE PASSING
THROUGH. DEWPOINT VALUES WILL BE MUCH LOWER THAN THIS PAST
WEEKEND...SO NO SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES
LOOK TO STAY IN THE 40S AND 50S FOR THURSDAY INTO THIS WEEKEND AND
THERE MAY BE A FEW DAYS WITH TEMPERATURES AT OR BELOW FREEZING
INTO THIS WEEKEND AS WELL.
