Skies this morning were mostly clear across the state, allowing
low temperatures to dip into the mid and upper 30s in a few
places. Fog once again developed over portions of the southern
half of Iowa this morning, with the densest fog kept mostly south
of Interstate 80. As of late this morning, skies remained clear in
many locations with fair weather cumulus clouds developing.
Temperatures had risen nicely into the 60s state wide, well on
their way to highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
Quiet conditions will stay in place through the end of the work
week and weekend, along with very pleasant high temperatures in
the upper 60s and eventually 70s for the weekend. By the start of
the new work week, though, an active pattern will return to the
state and start a string of days during which showers and storms
will be possible. Shower and storm chances will begin to increase
late Sunday and into Monday morning across western Iowa and will
work its way across the state and stick around much of the week.
While it is too early to be certain, the opportunity for a few
severe storms may be possible next week with the associated
