It's been another really nice day with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the 50s!
We'll have another quiet evening, which is great for all of the events downtown and throughout our city. Tonight looks to be mostly clear and quiet with lows in the low to mid 30s.
Our next weather maker arrives this weekend. Skies will become increasingly cloudy on Saturday. Rain showers will move into western Iowa Saturday afternoon before spreading into central Iowa Saturday evening through Sunday morning. Spotty showers may linger into Sunday afternoon before things dry out Sunday night. Rain totals for central Iowa will likely be around 0.5". Despite the rain and clouds, highs should remain in the mid 50s. Saturday will be warmer than Sunday, though.
The first half of next week looks pretty dry, but our first real threat of thunderstorms will roll in next Thursday and Friday. Before that arrives, temperatures should warm up quite a bit! Forecast highs next Wednesday and Thursday are in the 60s.
Have a good weekend!
