WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
544 PM CDT WED MAY 4 2016

BY NEARLY ALL STANDARDS IT WAS A GORGEOUS DAY ACROSS THE STATE.
THE ONLY REAL COMPLAINT WAS LIKELY THE NORTHWEST WINDS APPROACHING
SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 20 MPH ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE STATE.
OTHERWISE...TEMPERATURES IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S AND AMPLE
SUNSHINE WITH ONLY SPOTTY CLOUDS TO THE EAST...MADE TODAY A
PLEASANT ONE. AS OF EARLY THIS EVENING...NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED WITH
TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 60S...CLEAR SKIES...AND NORTHWEST WINDS
ACROSS THE STATE.

THE MAIN DRIVER OF THIS PLEASANT WEATHER...HIGH PRESSURE AND AN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDING IN...WILL CONTINUE TO ROUND OUT THE
WORK WEEK. TEMPERATURES THURSDAY WILL BE SIMILAR TO TODAY...WITH A
FEW MORE LOCATIONS HITTING THE LOW 70S IN WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE
STATE. FRIDAY WILL EASILY BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE WEEK AS
SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS MOVE IN...BOOSTING HIGHS INTO THE LOW TO MID
80S STATE WIDE. THAT WARMTH WILL BE SHORT LIVED AS NORTHWESTERLY
WINDS RETURN AND DROP TEMPERATURES BACK INTO THE UPPER 60S AND LOW
70S FOR THE WEEKEND. PRECIPITATION CHANCES ALSO RETURN OVER THE
WEEKEND AS A FRONT MOVES THROUGH...THOUGH THE BEST CHANCES FOR
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL LIKELY BE EARLY IN THE NEW WORK WEEK.
