WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
525 PM CDT THU AUG 27 2015

A FEW BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS COULD BE FOUND ACROSS WESTERN IOWA THIS
AFTERNOON...BUT THE WEATHER ACROSS THE STATE WAS CHARACTERIZED BY
MORE CLOUDS THAN SUN WITH WIDELY SCATTERED POCKETS OF LIGHT
SHOWERS. TEMPERATURES IN THE CLOUDY EAST ONLY REACHED THE LOW TO
MID 70S TODAY...WHEREAS TOWARDS THE MISSOURI RIVER HIGHS REACHED
THE UPPER 70S TO LOW 80S. WINDS WERE OUT OF THE SOUTHEAST AT 10 TO
15 MPH.

THE CLOUDS AND SHOWERS TODAY WERE THE RESULT OF AN APPROACHING
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER NEBRASKA WHICH WILL IMPACT THE WEATHER
ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING AS IT SLOWLY MOVES
EASTWARD. MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHERN
IOWA AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA TONIGHT AS WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORMS
TRACK EASTWARD OUT AHEAD OF THE LOW. SOME LOCATIONS COULD EASILY
SEE OVER TWO INCHES OF RAINFALL BY FRIDAY MORNING. HIGHS ON
FRIDAY WILL ONLY REACH THE UPPER 60S NORTH TO UPPER 70S SOUTH DUE
TO THE RAIN AND CLOUDY SKIES.

AFTER THIS RAIN PULLS OUT...THE NEXT WEEK WILL FEATURE A RETURN TO
DRY SUMMER WEATHER WITH HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S AND HIGHER
HUMIDITIES.
