532 PM CDT Mon Mar 27 2017
It was another overcast day across most of Iowa, a theme that has
been on repeat for several days. Parts of northwest Iowa did see some
clearing skies during the afternoon. Highs were in the 40s and 50s
with light northerly winds.
Sunshine will not be returning to forecast anytime soon. Patchy fog
will be possible Tuesday morning, then our next chance for widespread
rainfall moves in on Wednesday and Thursday as the next low pressure
system crosses the Plains states. Parts of the state could pick up
another inch of rainfall. A rain and snow mix is possible in northern
Iowa during the nighttime hours, but no snow accumulation is expected.
Warmer temperatures are set to return by the weekend with highs in the
upper 50s and 60s possible. Daily chances for light rain will
continue, but we may see breaks in the clouds and have some sunshine.
