WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
525 PM CDT SAT MAY 16 2015

PARTLY SUNNY SKIES DOMINATED THE AFTERNOON ACROSS THE STATE ALONG
WITH FAIRLY STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS...AROUND 15 TO 20 MPH AND
GUSTS TOWARDS 30 MPH IN MANY LOCATIONS. AS A RESULT...WHILE HIGH
TEMPERATURES WERE NOT ALL THAT HOT...IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOW
80S...THE MOISTURE THE SOUTHERLY WINDS BROUGHT INTO THE AREA KEPT
IT MUGGY. AS OF EARLY THIS EVENING...TEMPERATURES AROUND THE STATE
WERE GENERALLY WITHIN ABOUT 5 DEGREES OF EACH OTHER...WITH A FEW
SITES AS LOW AS THE MID 70S AND A HANDFUL IN THE LOW 80S.

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE AROUND THE STATE THIS
EVENING...WITH MOST OF THE ACTION IN WESTERN AND EASTERN IOWA AS
OF 5PM. THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT IS EXPECTED TO BE MINIMAL WITH
THESE STORMS...THOUGH SMALL HAIL AND STRONG WINDS ARE NOT OUT OF
THE QUESTION. SUNDAY WILL PROVIDE ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND
STORMS...WITH THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME OF THEM TO BE SEVERE. THE
GREATEST CHANCE FOR SEVERE STORMS WILL BE LATER IN THE
AFTERNOON...AND MOST LIKELY OVER THE EASTERN HALF TO THIRD OF THE
STATE.

ONCE THE STORMS AND LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WORK THROUGH THE PLAINS
THIS WEEKEND...STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS WILL BRING ABOUT RATHER
CHILLY TEMPERATURES FOR MAY. HIGHS THE FIRST HALF OF THE WORK WEEK
WILL...IN MOST CASES...BE 20 DEGREES COOLER THAN THIS
WEEKEND...RESULTING IN HIGHS IN THE UPPER 50S TO LOW 60S. WHILE
TEMPERATURES WILL FEEL CHILLY...IT PRIMARILY BE DRY WITH THE BEST
PRECIPITATION CHANCES GLANCING THE SOUTHERN HALF ON WEDNESDAY.
