WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
537 PM CDT MON MAY 18 2015

HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUED TO PUSH INTO THE REGION TODAY...BRINGING
ABOUT THE RATHER BIG CHANGE FROM THE WARM WEEKEND TEMPS AND
STORMS. WINDS TODAY REMAINED GUSTY...BUT OUT OF THE NORTHWEST
INSTEAD OF THE SOUTHEAST AS WAS THE CASE OVER THE WEEKEND. MANY
AREAS SAW SUSTAINED WINDS IN EXCESS OF 20MPH AND GUSTS TO 30MPH OR
GREATER. THOSE GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS BROUGHT WITH THEM A
SIGNIFICANT COOL DOWN AND DRIER AIR...ALLOWING HIGHS TO ONLY REACH
THE LOW 50S TO LOW 60S ACROSS THE STATE AND DROPPING DEW POINTS
OVER 30 DEGREES FROM THE WEEKEND.

AS HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE AREA FOR THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS...WINDS WILL REMAIN GENERALLY OUT OF THE
NORTH...BUT MUCH LIGHTER THAN TODAY...AROUND 10 TO 15 TUESDAY AND
5 TO 10 MPH WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO BE COOL WITH
MID 50S TO LOW 60S TOMORROW AND MID 50S WEDNESDAY. LOWS TONIGHT
WILL FLIRT WITH FREEZING TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE FAR
NORTH...WHILE THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE SHOULD SEE MID TO UPPER
30S. HIGHS FOR THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK WILL REBOUND INTO THE
UPPER 60S AND LOW 70S AND LOWS WILL JUMP UP INTO THE MID 50S BY
FRIDAY AS WELL.

THE BEST AND REALLY ONLY CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION DURING THE WORK
WEEK COMES TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY AND WILL PRIMARILY BE
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN THIRD TO HALF OF THE STATE...THOUGH SOME
SHOWERS MAY BE SEEN ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF AS WELL. SEVERE
WEATHER AND THUNDER ARE NOT CURRENTLY EXPECTED GIVEN THE OVERNIGHT
TIMING AND TEMPERATURES ONLY INTO THE UPPER 40S AND LOW 50S.
