Skies were cloudy across the state this afternoon with high

Low pressure over the Great Lakes was responsible for the cloud
cover over Iowa. As this low slowly lifts off, the cloud cover
will diminish over Iowa but not until later on Sunday. For the
beginning of the week...high pressure will be over the region
bringing at least partly sunny skies to the area as well as warmer
temperatures. Highs for Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper
70s to around 80 with cooler temps expected by Thursday. A low
pressure system will sweep across the west and enter the upper
midwest late Tuesday through Wednesday driving a cold front
through the region. Showers and thunderstorms will return to the
area and locally heavy rainfall along with some strong to severe
storms are expected during this time period. Following this system
will be a cooler and dry end to the week with seasonal highs in
the mid to upper 60s and lows in the 40s.
