WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
549 PM CDT THU MAY 5 2016

MUCH LIKE YESTERDAY...TODAY WAS A NEARLY PERFECT SPRING DAY ACROSS
THE STATE. SUNSHINE ONCE AGAIN DOMINATED THE DAY AND HIGHS TOPPED
OUT IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S IN EASTERN IOWA AND THE LOW TO MID 70S
IN CENTRAL AND WESTERN IOWA. THE SIGNIFICANT CHANGE FROM YESTERDAY
WAS THAT WINDS SHIFTED OUT OF THE WEST AND WERE LIGHTER.

FRIDAY WILL ONCE AGAIN BE A PLEASANT DAY THANKS TO HIGH PRESSURE...BUT
WILL BE QUITE A BIT WARMER THAN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS THANKS TO
INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS. AS A RESULT...HIGHS WILL TOP OUT
IN THE LOW TO MID 80S IN MOST LOCATIONS ACROSS THE STATE.

THE PLEASANT CONDITIONS WILL SLOWLY COME TO AN END OVER THE
WEEKEND AS A NUMBER OF SYSTEMS BEGIN TO COME INTO PLAY. SATURDAY
WILL SEE A COOL FRONT PUSH THROUGH FROM THE NORTH WHICH WILL NOT
ONLY DROP TEMPERATURES BACK INTO THE 60S AND LOW 70S...BUT ALSO
PUSH THROUGH AN OPPORTUNITY OR TWO FOR SOME SHOWERS AND STORMS.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY WILL CONTINUE TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SHOWERS
AND STORMS FROM A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WORKING ITS WAY OUT OF THE
SOUTHWEST UNITED STATES. THEN MIDWEEK AND THROUGH THE END OF THE
WEEK...A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WORKING ITS WAY SOUTHWARD OUT OF
CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE PERIODIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR SHOWERS
AND STORMS.
