WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
510 AM CDT SUN OCT 19 2014

HIGH CLOUDS BLANKETED THE NORTHEAST THIRD OF THE STATE OVERNIGHT
WHILE THE REST OF IOWA REPORTED MOSTLY CLEAR SKY.  A SOUTHERLY WIND
AT 5 TO 15 MPH WAS COMMON ACROSS THE STATE WHICH BROUGHT IN WARMER
TEMPERATURES OVERNIGHT.  AT 4 AM TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE MID
30S TO THE MID 40S.  SOME PATCHY FOG HAD ALSO DEVELOPED IN LOWER
LYING AREAS AND VISIBILITIES DID RANGE FROM A HALF MILE OR LESS TO
AROUND 3 MILES.

HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE WILL SHIFT EAST TODAY KEEPING THE WIND
FROM A SOUTH OR SOUTHWEST DIRECTION AND INCREASING TO 15 TO 20 MPH
WITH A FEW HIGHER GUSTS.  SEVERAL WEAK DISTURBANCES WILL MOVE ACROSS
THE REGION THROUGH TONIGHT AND LACK OF APPRECIABLE MOISTURE OVER THE
UPPER MIDWEST WILL MEAN THAT THESE SYSTEMS WILL ONLY BRING AN
INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER FROM TIME TO TIME WITH LITTLE THREAT FOR
RAINFALL.  FOR THE START OF THE WORK WEEK THROUGH MID WEEK HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST KEEPING
TEMPERATURES MILD WITH LITTLE CHANCE FOR RAINFALL.  HIGHS WILL BE IN
THE 60S THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEKEND AND MONDAY AND JUST A LITTLE
COOLER ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY A MORE POTENT UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM WILL
MOVE ACROSS THE REGION TAPPING SOME MOISTURE TO BRING ALONG WITH IT.
THERE WILL BE SCATTERED SHOWERS ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST ASSOCIATED
WITH THE PASSAGE OF THIS SYSTEM.  LIGHT TO MODERATE RAINFALL AMOUNTS
ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH THURSDAY.  HIGH PRESSURE THEN REBUILDS INTO THE
REGION FOR LATER IN THE WEEK FOR A RETURN TO MILD AND DRY
CONDITIONS.
