505 AM CDT WED APR 27 2016

SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WERE REPORTED ACROSS THE FAR
SOUTH AND WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE OVERNIGHT.  THE STORMS WERE
MOVING TO THE NORTHWEST.  THE WIND WAS OUT OF THE EAST AT 10 TO 20
MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS AND TEMPERATURES HELD IN THE LOWER TO MID 40S
ACROSS THE STATE DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL BE IN A WET PATTERN FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS
AS SEVERAL STORM SYSTEMS PASS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL
PLAINS.  FOR TODAY...A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF
KANSAS AND INTO SOUTHERN IOWA BEFORE PULLING OFF TO THE NORTHEAST
FOR THURSDAY NIGHT.  SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE PREVALENT
ACROSS MISSOURI AND IOWA TODAY.  STRONG STORMS ARE POSSIBLE THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN MISSOURI AND POSSIBLY AS FAR NORTH AS
SOUTHERN IOWA. HEAVY RAIN IS LIKELY WITH THESE STORMS.  THE
STRONGEST STORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF STRONG WINDS AND LARGE
HAIL.  A WARM FRONT WILL SET UP OVER NORTHERN MISSOURI OR SOUTHERN
IOWA LATER TODAY INTO THE EVENING AND AN ISOLATED TORNADO CANNOT BE
RULED OUT.

THEN FOR LATE FRIDAY THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEKEND...ANOTHER STORM
SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS ACROSS THE CENTRAL
PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST.  BY THIS TIME COOLER AIR WILL BE IN PLACE
AND WHILE THERE WILL BE SOME THUNDERSTORMS...THE SEVERE POTENTIAL
FOR THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL BE MINIMAL.  HOWEVER...SOME HEAVY
RAINFALL IS STILL POSSIBLE.  IF THE HEAVY RAINFALL WITH THE SECOND
SYSTEM FALLS OVER THE SAME AREAS AS THE FIRST THEN AREA RIVERS MAY
SEE SOME SUBSTANTIAL RISES.

HIGHS THROUGH THIS WEEKEND WILL ONLY BE IN THE 40S AND 50S WITH A
WARM UP BACK INTO THE 60S EXPECTED FOR THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.
OVERNIGHT LOWS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE WILL BE IN THE 40S.
