WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA
511 PM CDT FRI MAY 1 2015

THE STRING OF BEAUTIFUL WEATHER HAD TO END AT SOME POINT...AND
TODAY HAPPENED TO BE IT FOR MOST. A WEAK BOUNDARY MOVED THROUGH
NORTHWEST AND MUCH OF CENTRAL IOWA BY LATE AFTERNOON...BRINGING
WITH IT SOME LIGHT RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES. THE BOUNDARY WILL
CONTINUE TO SLOWLY WORK SOUTHEAST THIS EVENING AND SHOULD
WEAKEN...RESULTING IN LIGHT RAIN AND POSSIBLY NO RAIN FOR SOME
AREAS OF SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTH EAST IOWA. MANY OF THE AREAS THAT
SAW RAIN AND CLOUD COVER THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON WERE ONLY ABLE
TO REACH THE LOW 60S FOR HIGHS...WHERE AS
EASTERN...SOUTHEASTERN...AND AREAS OF NORTHWEST IOWA THAT CLEARED
OUT WERE ABLE TO REACH THE LOW 70S ONCE AGAIN.

TODAY WAS JUST A SAMPLE OF THE SHIFT IN WEATHER FOR THE NEXT FEW
DAYS. A COUPLE OF DISTURBANCES WILL TRY AND WORK THROUGH THE
STATE...PRIMARILY THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS...THIS WEEKEND AND WILL
PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOME THUNDER...THOUGH NOTHING SEVERE IS
EXPECTED. WITH THE RETURN OF SOUTHERLY WINDS...HIGHS WILL REBOUND
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...WITH THE PEAK BEING IN THE LOW 80S ON
SUNDAY.

AS FOR THE NEW WORK WEEK...IT LOOKS TO BE A WET ONE WITH ANOTHER
COLD FRONT WORKING ITS WAY INTO THE REGION LATE SUNDAY AND INTO
MONDAY. WHILE IT WILL PASS THROUGH IT IS EXPECTED TO STALL AND
EVEN BACK INTO THE REGION. AS A RESULT...GOOD PRECIPITATION
CHANCES ARE IN THE FORECAST EACH OF MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. HIGHS
DURING THE WEEK ARE FORECAST IN THE 70S...BUT MAY BE A BIT COOLER
IN AREAS OF EXTENDED RAINFALL AND PROLONGED CLOUD COVER.
