NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
528 AM CDT THU APR 28 2016

MUCH OF THE RAINFALL FROM WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY EVENING HAD
PIVOTED NORTH AND WESTWARD LEAVING IOWA MAINLY DRY...ALTHOUGH A FEW
LOCATIONS IN THE NORTHWEST REPORTED PERIODS OF LIGHT RAIN.  HOWEVER
THERE WAS PLENTY OF LOW CLOUD COVER ACROSS THE STATE ALONG WITH SOME
PATCHY FOG.  TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY IN THE LOW TO MID 40S
OVERNIGHT BUT A FEW LOCATIONS IN THE SOUTHEAST WERE ABLE TO STAY IN
THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S.  THE WIND WAS GENERALLY OUT OF THE EAST
AT 10 TO 15 MPH.  MOST LOCATIONS YESTERDAY RECEIVED BETWEEN A HALF
AND THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH OF RAINFALL BUT ESTHERVILLE RECEIVED
NEARLY AN INCH AND A QUARTER  AND THE WEATHER OFFICE IN JOHNSTON
RECEIVED NEARLY AN INCH OF RAIN.

THE STORM SYSTEM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RAINFALL AND SEVERE STORMS
YESTERDAY WILL BE SLOWLY PUSHING EAST TODAY LEAVING CLOUDY SKIES AND
COLD TEMPERATURES IN ITS WAKE.  HIGHS TODAY WILL ONLY BE IN THE MID
40S NORTH TO THE MID 50S CENTRAL AND UPPER 50S TO AROUND 60 FAR
SOUTH.  WE WILL GET A BREAK FROM THE RAIN ON FRIDAY BUT TEMPERATURES
WILL STILL BE COOL WITH HIGHS GENERALLY IN THE 50S.  MORE RAIN WILL
WORK BACK INTO THE REGION FOR FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY. ANOTHER
STORM SYSTEM WILL TAKE A TRACK SIMILAR TO THIS LAST SYSTEM AND BRING
ANOTHER HALF INCH TO AN INCH OF RAIN TO THE UPPER MIDWEST.  THIS
NEXT SYSTEM WILL NOT BE AS STRONG AS THE LAST SYSTEM AND AS A
RESULT...SEVERE STORMS ARE NOT EXPECTED FOR IOWA OR THE UPPER
MIDWEST.  WITH THE CLOUDS AND RAIN...HIGHS FOR SATURDAY WILL AGAIN
BE VERY COOL WITH READINGS IN THE 40S AND 50S. HIGHS BY EARLY NEXT
