The Pacific Northwest like weather continued to round out the weekend.
Highs across Iowa once again struggled to get out of the 40s in most
locations, though southeast Iowa did manage to reach into the lower
50s. Showers and periods of strong winds also highlighted the day
again, with a number of areas seeing a half inch or more of rain so
far today. As of early this evening, essentially nothing had changed
with temperatures still cold, winds still gusty, and showers moving
across the state.
The one piece of good news on the day is that the region is one day
closer to milder, dryer conditions. Monday still shaped up to be on
the cool to chilly side in the 40s to low 50s along with some linger
showers, but the remainder of the week should have little issue
getting back into the upper 50s and 60s. Piling on to the better news,
next weekend should see upper 60s and low 70s move back in across the
region. Other than Monday, a couple of opportunities for a shower or
storm or two exist Wednesday and Thursday, but do not appear as though
they should amount to anything widespread. In conclusion, hold out
through Monday and conditions will begin to improve.
