CLOUD COVER PERSISTED ACROSS MOST OF THE REGION AS AN AREA OF LOW

PRESSURE HELPED REPLACE THE FOG WITH RAIN. ON AVERAGE...AROUND
ONE TENTH TO ONE QUARTER OF AN INCH OF RAIN FELL ACROSS NORTHERN
TO CENTRAL IOWA INTO NEBRASKA AND SOUTHEASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE A LITTLE HIGHER TOWARDS SOUTHEASTERN DAKOTA
AND A LITTLE LESSER TOWARDS CENTRAL TO EASTERN IOWA. WITH
OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES BEING ON THE MILD SIDE...THE PRECIPITATION
