Sunday has been much more cloudy around our state, and temperatures have been quite cool. Many areas have remained in the 60s outside!
A few light rain showers are possible through the afternoon and evening, but there are no thunderstorms around our state. Any rain we do see witll be light.
A stronger cold front will move through on Monday and bring many of us rain mainly during the afternoon. There could be some showers in the morning, but the better chances come later in the day. While a few thunderstorms are possible, severe weather is not a major concern at this time. However, a few storms in southern Iowa could develop strong wind gusts or large hail. After that, rain chances are pretty low for the middle part of the week.
We are likely going to close out the month of August on a cool note! Highs early next week will hover in the 70s. Thursday will bring a brief warm-up with temperatures climbing into the 80s, but it will not last long. We will quickly drop back into the 70s, which will carry us over into Labor Day weekend. There will be a chance of rain for week one of high school football games, but the timing is still a bit unclear. We will continue to monitor this chance of rain.
Have a good remainder of the weekend!
