Today will be the warmest day of the week with highs close to 50 this afternoon. Cloud cover will increase on Saturday as the next system approaches the state. With a little extra cloud cover, highs will be in the mid 40s. Sunday will stay in the 40s which means all precipitation that falls will be rain. Rain totals will stay under a half inch. A strong cold front will push through late Sunday into early Monday which may change the rain over to snow around sunrise in central Iowa, but snow totals look to stay under 2?. Central Iowa is expected to stay dry through Thursday with highs staying above average.
