WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
1047 AM CDT FRI SEP 26 2014

SUNNY SKIES GREETED THE REGION THIS MORNING. A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE HAS SETTLED IN OVER THE UPPER MIDWEST...LEADING TO VERY FEW
CLOUDS. TEMPERATURES THIS MORNING STARTED OFF ABOVE NORMAL.
NORMAL LOWS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR ARE GENERALLY IN THE MID 40S TO
LOW 50S. AT 7 AM...DES MOINES HAD A LOW OF 62...WATERLOO HAD A LOW
OF 52...AND LA CROSSE...WISCONSIN HAD A LOW OF 55 DEGREES. WINDS
WERE ON THE LIGHT SIDE...BLOWING FROM THE EAST TO SOUTHEAST AT
AROUND 5 MPH OR LESS.

FOR THE REST OF TODAY...EXPECT SCATTERED CLOUDS. A STRAY SHOWER OR
TWO MAY BE POSSIBLE IN SOUTHEASTERN TO SOUTH CENTRAL IOWA...BUT
ANY RAINFALL WILL NEITHER BE VERY LONG LIVED NOR PRODUCE MUCH
RAIN. TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL BE A FEW DEGREES HIGHER THAN WHAT
THEY WERE FOR YESTERDAY. HIGHS SHOULD BE IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOW
80S FOR MOST OF THE REGION...WITH MID 80S POSSIBLE INTO CENTRAL
NEBRASKA AND THE DAKOTAS. WINDS TODAY WILL BE FROM THE SOUTHEAST
AT AROUND 10 TO 15 MPH FOR MOST OF THE REGION.

THIS RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL STAY IN PLACE FOR THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. TODAY INTO MONDAY APPEAR TO BE VERY
PERSISTENT...MEANING THE WEATHER FOR EACH OF THESE DAYS WILL BE
VIRTUAL CARBON COPIES OF EACH OTHER. THIS RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE
LOOKS TO EVENTUALLY BREAK DOWN AND MOVE AWAY HEADING INTO THE
MIDDLE TO END OF NEXT WEEK...MEANING THERE COULD BE A WET START TO
THE MONTH OF OCTOBER FOR MUCH OF THE UPPER MIDWEST.
