505 AM CST TUE JAN 20 2015

ANY LINGERING PRECIPITATION FROM LAST EVENING HAD PUSHED EAST OF
IOWA BY 2 AM.  LOW CLOUDS REMAINED ACROSS NORTHERN IOWA WHICH HELPED
TO KEEP TEMPERATURES ABOVE FREEZING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.

THEN ACROSS SOUTHERN IOWA. 4 AM TEMPERATURES AT ESTHERVILLE AND
MASON CITY WERE 34 DEGREES WHILE CRESTON AND OSKALOOSA WERE AT 29.

THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL REMAIN IN A FAIRLY ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN
THROUGH THIS WEEK.  A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES WILL PASS
ACROSS THE REGION.  SOME OF THESE DISTURBANCES WILL BE STRONGER AND
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LIGHT PRECIPITATION WHILE OTHERS WILL JUST

NORTHERN PLAINS INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT.
LIGHT SNOW WILL DEVELOP WITH THIS SYSTEM LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND
