WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
452 PM CDT FRI AUG 1 2014

THIS AFTERNOON WAS A REALTIVELY PLEASANT ONE AROUND THE STATE AS
TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE LOW TO MID 80S AND DEW POINTS IN THE
UPPER 50S AND LOW 50S. WINDS WERE CALM TO LIGHT AROUND THE STATE
WITH NO DOMINANT DIRECTION. THE MAJORITY OF THE PRECIPITATION HAS
STAYED OUT OF IOWA TOWARDS THE NORTH AND EAST. CURRENTLY
TEMPERATURES ARE IN THE 80S WITH LIGHT WINDS AND SOME ISOLATED
WEAK THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY SCATTERED ABOUT THE STATE.

THIS EVENING AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OR TWO IS NOT OUT OF THE
QUESTION AS TEMPERATURES HIT THEIR HIGHS FOR THE DAY...ANY
ACTIVITY WILL BEGIN TO DIE OFF AS TEMPERATURES COME DOWN OFF OF
THE DAYTIME HIGHS THIS EVENING. TEMPERATURES WILL DROP DOWN TO
THE LOW 60S BY MIDNIGHT AND BOTTOM OUT IN THE MID TO UPPER 50S FOR
MOST. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT.

THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK...THE WEATHER WILL REMAIN
SIMILAR TO THIS WEEK...THOUGH TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO WARM
SLIGHTLY...INTO THE MID 80S FOR HIGHS. ANOTHER COOLDOWN WILL PASS
THROUGH THE AREA AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH...BRINGING
HIGH TEMPERATURES DOWN ON WEDNESDAY TO THE UPPER 70S TO LOW 80S.
CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION RETURN TUESDAY AND HANG AROUND THROUGH
THE REST OF THE WEEK...WITH THE BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION
COMING ON WEDNESDAY AND INTO THURSDAY.
