WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
508 AM CDT SAT APR 30 2016

BANDS OF LIGHT SHOWERS WERE MOVING UP ACROSS IOWA FROM MISSOURI AND
BY 5AM THE SHOWERS HAD REACHED THE HIGHWAY 20 CORRIDOR. OVERALL THE
SHOWERS HAVE BEEN VERY LIGHT AND PERIODIC SO FAR.  TEMPERATURES HAVE
NOT WANDERED FAR FROM THEIR HIGHS ON FRIDAY.  AT 4 AM TEMPERATURES
WERE STILL IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S.  AN EAST WIND AT 10 TO 15 MPH
WAS COMMON ACROSS THE STATE.

A SLOW MOVING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LIFT OUT OF THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS TODAY INTO THIS EVENING AND INTO THE OHIO VALLEY BY MONDAY
AFTERNOON.  BANDS OF SHOWERS WILL LIFT ACROSS MUCH OF THE UPPER
MIDWEST TODAY INTO THIS EVENING.  OVERNIGHT THE SHOWERS WILL PUSH
OFF TO THE NORTH AND EAST BEFORE ENDING TOMORROW.  THERE IS
POTENTIAL WITH THIS SYSTEM FOR MANY LOCATIONS TO SEE A HALF TO MORE
THAN THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH OF RAIN.  HOWEVER THE SYSTEM WILL BE
FIGHTING A DRIER EASTERLY FLOW AND FOR A PERIOD LATER THIS MORNING
INTO THE AFTERNOON THE SYSTEM WILL LOSE SOME OF ITS BETTER MOISTURE.
THUS RAINFALL AMOUNTS MAY BE LIGHTER TODAY IF THAT HAPPENS.

TEMPERATURES WILL BE QUITE COOL TODAY WITH READINGS IN THE UPPER 40S
TO MID 50S.  AS WE DRY OUT ON SUNDAY AND SEE A LITTLE MORE
SUN...TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 50S.  FOR NEXT WEEK A
LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE ROCKIES.  THIS WILL
KEEP THE UPPER MIDWEST IN A NORTHERLY FLOW INITIALLY BUT BY MID TO
LATE WEEK THE UPPER RIDGE WILL NOSE INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST.  THE
RESULT WILL BE A DRY PERIOD WITH MODERATING TEMPERATURES BACK INTO
THE 60S AND 70S.
