WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1103 AM CDT FRI AUG 29 2014

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE OVER FAR WESTERN IOWA
THIS MORNING. SKIES WERE SUNNY ACROSS THE EASTERN TWO THIRDS OF
THE STATE...WHILE CLOUDY SKIES BLANKETED THE WESTERN THIRD.
MORNING LOWS WERE GENERALLY IN THE MIDDLE 60S TO AROUND 70. SOUTH
WINDS WERE 5 TO 15 MPH.

ANOTHER SYSTEM WILL CROSS THE REGION TODAY AND TONIGHT CREATING
YET ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT. A COLD
FRONT STRETCHES ALONG THE MISSOURI RIVER BASIN INTO KANSAS AND
OKLAHOMA. MID AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING HOURS STORMS WILL RE-
DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT. HEAVY RAINFALL WILL ONCE
AGAIN BE LIKELY WITH THE STORMS.

BEHIND THE FRONT...THERE WILL BE A BRIEF PERIOD OF DRY CONDITIONS
AND WARMER TEMPERATURES. BY LATE SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY YET
ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM WILL PASS ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST. THIS
SYSTEM APPEARS TO BE STRONGER AND WILL BRING A GOOD CHANCE FOR
SEVERE WEATHER. IN ADDITION TO AN INCREASED THREAT FOR SEVERE
WEATHER...HEAVY RAINFALL WILL ALSO BE LIKELY. AFTER THAT SYSTEM
PASSES ON TUESDAY THE REGION WILL FINALLY GET A CHANCE TO DRY OUT
INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. HIGHS THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK WILL BE IN THE UPPER 70S TO MID 80S WITH LOWS IN THE 60S.
