WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
455 AM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG AND DRIZZLE WERE COMMON ACROSS IOWA
OVERNIGHT.  THE WIND WAS LIGHT AND VARIABLE BETWEEN THE NORTHWEST
AND NORTHEAST.  TEMPERATURES ACROSS NORTHWESTERN IOWA WERE IN THE
UPPER 30S TO LOWER 40S BUT ACROSS THE REST OF THE STATE MID TO UPPER
40S WERE COMMON...IN LARGE PART DUE TO THE CLOUD COVER.

IOWA AND LOCATIONS TO THE NORTH WILL BE IN BETWEEN WEATHER SYSTEMS
TODAY BUT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE SO WHILE IT WILL
NOT BE RAINING...IT WILL STILL BE CLOUDY AND QUITE COOL FOR LATE
APRIL.  LATE TONIGHT THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEKEND ANOTHER STORM
SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES AND ACROSS
THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL PLAINS.  THIS SYSTEM WILL SPREAD RAIN
ACROSS MUCH OF THE UPPER MIDWEST BEGINNING TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY
THEN BEGIN TO PULL OUT ON SUNDAY...LEAVING LINGERING RAINFALL ACROSS
THE AREA FOR LATE IN THE WEEKEND.  RAINFALL AMOUNTS WITH THIS NEXT
SYSTEM COULD BE AS MUCH AS AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF IN SOME
LOCATIONS.  WHILE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS
SOUTHERN IOWA AND LOCATIONS SOUTH...SEVERE STORMS ARE NOT EXPECTED.

ONCE WE GET THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK...A LARGE RIDGE OF
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE ROCKIES AND INTO THE PLAINS.
THIS WILL BRING A BREAK FROM THE WET AND COLD WEATHER THE REGION HAS
BEEN EXPERIENCING.  HIGHS THROUGH SATURDAY WILL BE IN THE 40S AND
50S THEN FOR SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WE WILL MODERATE INTO THE
50S AND 60S.  WE SHOULD BE BACK IN THE 70S FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
