ALTHOUGH SKIES REMAINED CLEAR EAST...CLOUDS WERE ON THE INCREASE INTO
WESTERN IOWA. AFTER SEVERAL COOL NIGHTS EARLY MORNING TEMPERATURES

LOWER 60S. WINDS WERE GENERALLY LIGHT FROM THE SOUTHEAST...AND
THERE WAS NO PRECIPITATION AS OF YET.

THE CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE ACROSS THE
REGION FROM WEST TO EAST TODAY HOWEVER AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS
ACROSS THE PLAINS AND EVENTUALLY REACHES WESTERN IOWA BY FRIDAY
MORNING. PLENTY OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE ANTICIPATED ALONG
