SKIES WERE CLOUDY ACROSS THE STATE THIS MORNING WITH SOME PATCHY
LIGHT FOG AND NORTHEAST WINDS OF 5 TO 15 MPH. EARLY MORNING LOWS
WERE IN THE UPPER 30S NORTHWEST TO THE LOWER AND MIDDLE 40S FOR
MOST OF THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE. BY LATE MORNING...THERE WAS
VERY LITTLE CHANGE TO TEMPERATURES DUE TO THE COOL NORTHEAST WINDS

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
