LOCAL 5 FORECAST: Breezy, mild weather this weekend

Temperatures will climb back to the 80s next week.

A little haze is expected again Sunday as high temperatures reach the mid 70s across the region. South winds will gust up to 30mph, especially in western Iowa during the day. This will keep an elevated fire danger in place, so it's best to avoid outdoor burning wherever possible. Otherwise, it should be a decent day for most of us! 

During the upcoming week, temperatures will return to the low 80s. This will hold steady through most of the week, despite Tuesday being the first day of autumn. Sunshine will stick around each day, along with the potential for more wildfire smoke high in the atmosphere.

We haven't had any rainfall in over a week now, and it's possible we'll go another week before rain returns to the forecast. Aside from a sprinkle or two during the week, it'll likely stay dry.

Have a good weekend!
