Friday will be very similar to Thursday with more sunshine and 50s. The wind will remain light out of the N with highs in the low to mid 50s across central Iowa.
The weekend is going to bring a chance for rain. Most of Saturday morning and afternoon will be on the dry side, but some light rain is possible throughout the late evening and especially the overnight. However, as the warm front lifts over the state, highs will climb to the mid to upper 50s for both Saturday and Sunday. A cold front is expected to sweep through Sunday into Monday bringing colder air for the start of the work week. Monday looks to be the coldest day of the week with a strong NE wind and highs in the 40s, but a large scale ridge will build to the west and move over the central US starting Tuesday. That ridge will bring central Iowa back into the 50s and 60s through the end of the work week.
