WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
455 AM CDT SUN MAY 1 2016

DRIZZLE AND FOG WERE COMMON ACROSS IOWA OVER NIGHT ALONG WITH
PERIODS OF LIGHT RAIN.  BY 4 AM THERE WERE TWO DISTINCT BANDS OF
SHOWERS ACROSS NORTHERN IOWA ARCING SOUTHWEST INTO NEBRASKA.  THE
LOW CLOUDS ONCE AGAIN HELD TEMPERATURES FAIRLY STEADY IN THE MID 40S
ACROSS IOWA.  A NORTHEAST WIND AT 1O TO 20 MPH WAS BEING REPORTED
ACROSS IOWA.

THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT BROUGHT RAIN TO THE UPPER MIDWEST FROM
FRIDAY NIGHT ONWARD WILL STILL IMPACT THE REGION TODAY AS IT SLOWLY
MOVES EAST ACROSS IOWA.  ONCE AGAIN PEOPLE IN THE UPPER MIDWEST CAN
EXPECT LOW CLOUDS...DRIZZLE AND FOG TODAY WITH PERIODS OF SHOWERS.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS TODAY HOWEVER WILL BE MUCH LESS THAN WE HAVE BEEN
SEEING.  SOME LOCATIONS ACROSS SOUTHERN IOWA AND EASTERN NEBRASKA
WILL STILL GET ANOTHER HALF INCH OR SO WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.

ON MONDAY A WEAK UPPER LEVEL WAVE WILL PUSH DOWN ACROSS THE REGION
BRINGING ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS TO THE UPPER MIDWEST.  THESE
WILL BE MORE SCATTERED IN NATURE AND NOT NEARLY AS MUCH RAINFALL
WILL OCCUR WITH THESE SHOWERS.   FOR TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY A LARGE
UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP OVER THE ROCKIES AND
SHARPEN THE UPPER WAVE OVER THE GREAT LAKES.  THIS WILL BRING
ANOTHER GLANCING SHOT AT RAIN FOR NORTHEAST IOWA AND LOCATIONS NORTH
AND EAST.  AFTER THAT THE UPPER RIDGE WILL SLOWLY SETTLE EASTWARD
ACROSS THE REGION AND THAT WILL FINALLY BRING DRIER CONDITIONS AND
WARMER TEMPERATURES TO THE UPPER MIDWEST.  HIGHS TODAY WILL BE IN
THE 40S AND 50S THEN WILL FINALLY RETURN TO THE 60S AND 70S NEXT
WEEK.
