WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
500 AM CST MON DEC 29 2014

A CLOUDY SKY WAS COMMON ACROSS ALL BUT SOUTHEAST IOWA.  IN
ADDITION...PATCHY AREAS OF LIGHT SNOW WERE REPORTED ACROSS CENTRAL
AND NORTHWEST IOWA BUT THERE WAS LITTLE MORE THAN A DUSTING OF
ACCUMULATION IN AREAS THAT RECEIVED SNOW.  TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM
THE MID TO UPPER TEENS ACROSS THE NORTHWEST AND NORTH CENTRAL PART
OF THE STATE TO THE MID 20S SOUTHEAST.   A NORTHERLY WIND AT 5 TO 10
MPH WAS COMMON OVERNIGHT.

WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES WILL MOVE ACROSS THE PLAINS AND UPPER
MIDWEST BUT A DEVELOPING STORM SYSTEM OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED
STATES WILL ACT TO ALTER THE UPPER LEVEL FLOW FROM A NORTHWEST FLOW
TO A MORE WEST OR SOUTHWEST FLOW.  IN ADDITION...CANADIAN HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST.  THIS HIGH WILL BRING IN
COLDER AND DRIER AIR WHICH WILL BE FIGHTING AGAINST THE UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCES.  THE RESULT WILL BE A CHANCE FOR LIGHT SNOW OVER
WESTERN IOWA AND LOCATIONS WEST AND SOUTH TODAY.  ACCUMULATIONS IN
IOWA WILL BE AROUND AN INCH AND IN CENTRAL NEBRASKA ACCUMULATIONS
WILL RANGE FROM 1 TO 2 INCHES.

TONIGHT HIGH PRESSURE WILL ENTRENCH THE REGION AND TEMPERATURES WILL
HEAD FOR THE DEEP FREEZE.  LOWS TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM 10 BELOW
NORTHWEST TO 15 ABOVE SOUTHEAST AND 10 BELOW TO 5 ABOVE TUESDAY
