SKIES ARE PARTLY CLOUDY EARLY THIS MORNING. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
HAVE DEVELOPED OVERNIGHT OVER SOUTHERN MINNESOTA AND NORTHEAST
IOWA...WITH A SECOND AREA IN EASTERN NEBRASKA TO WESTERN AND
SOUTHWEST IOWA. TEMPERATURES REMAIN QUITE WARM...WITH READINGS IN
THE UPPER 60S TO LOWER 70S OVER MUCH OF THE AREA. WINDS ARE
SOUTHWEST AT 5 TO 15 MPH.

A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE CAUSING THE THUNDERSTORMS OVER
WESTERN IOWA WILL MOVE EAST SOUTHEAST THROUGH MORNING...WITH THE
THUNDERSTORMS GENERALLY DIMINISHING THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS.
SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL TRANSPORT VERY WARM AIR INTO THE STATE TODAY
AS HIGHS REACH THE UPPER 80S NORTH TO LOWER 90S ACROSS THE
SOUTH...AND IN THE MID 90S OVER THE FAR SOUTHWEST UNDER PARTLY
CLOUDY SKIES. A STORM SYSTEM OVER CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA TO NORTHERN
MINNESOTA WILL MOVE EAST TODAY...DRAGGING A COOL FRONT ACROSS IOWA
LATE THIS AFTERNOON. AHEAD OF THE FRONT TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARM
WITH RATHER HUMID CONDITIONS EXPECTED. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL FORM ALONG THE BOUNDARY FROM CENTRAL THROUGH SOUTHERN IOWA
LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. THERE IS A SMALL RISK THAT
A FEW STORMS MAY BE SEVERE WITH STRONG WINDS BEING THE MAIN CONCERN.
A MUCH GREATER RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER IS ANTICIPATED FROM NORTHEAST
IOWA TO LOWER MICHIGAN WHERE A SLIGHT TO ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE
STORMS IS FORECAST FROM WISCONSIN TO LOWER MICHIGAN TODAY.

THE WORK WEEK WILL BEGIN A COOL DOWN WITH HIGHS MONDAY IN THE MID
80S. TUESDAY ONWARD...HIGHS WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE LOWER 80S.
SOME AREAS MAY SEE HIGHS ONLY IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S BY THE END
OF THE WEEK...BUT A LOT WILL DEPEND ON WHETHER OR NOT CLOUD COVER
IS PRESENT. CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL PERIODICALLY OCCUR
THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK AS UNSETTLED WEATHER IS EXPECTED OVER
IOWA.
