The seasonal air has finally returned across the state of Iowa. Today will be noticeably warmer with highs in the lower to middle 40s this afternoon. The wind will also pick up this afternoon from the south gusting near 20-25 mph. Clouds will continue to increase overnight which will keep overnight lows seasonal in the mid 30s. Despite a cloudy sky on Saturday the warmer start will allow for highs to climb back into the middle 40s.
A cold front will move through Iowa overnight Saturday into Sunday which will bring a chance for some light rain around midnight. Rain totals will stay less than a tenth of an inch and the rain will be out of the state before sunrise on Sunday. This means Sunday afternoon will be dry but cloudy with highs in the middle 40s.
A second weaker wave will push through the state on Monday. A few sprinkles are possible with this wave and highs look to stay around the middle 40s. Slightly warmer temperatures will arrive for the middle of the week with highs near 50 on Wednesday, but a stronger wave will arrive on Thursday which will bring cooler air into Iowa for the rest of the week and weekend.
