LOCAL 5 FORECAST: A dry and warm start to fall

Highs will be in the low to mid 80s today through Saturday

Fall is going to start how summer ended - dry and mostly sunny. Other than some more haze, it will be a mainly clear sky today as temperatures top out near 80 this afternoon. Fog will be possible late tonight through Wednesday morning especially in southwest Iowa. The rest of the day tomorrow will be partly to mostly sunny with highs back near 80.

A few light showers will be possible Thursday in northeast Iowa, but the rest of us likely stay dry. Temperatures will be on the rise late this week with highs climbing from the low 80s Thursday to the mid 80s Friday.

A cold front will move through Iowa Saturday and could produce some showers and storms mainly in northern Iowa. A few more showers can't be ruled out in the northeast half of Iowa on Sunday. Weekend highs go from near 80 Saturday to the 70s on Sunday.

Next week will likely be noticeably cooler! Highs are forecast to be in the 60s next Monday through Thursday.

Have a good evening!
