Widespread dense fog blanketed much of central to western Iowa
into eastern Nebraska as well as even portions of northeast Iowa

reduced to a quarter mile or less at times. At 4 AM CDT,
temperatures ranged in the upper 40s to lower 50s in northern
Iowa, southern Minnesota, northeast Nebraska, and southeast South

temperatures ranged in the upper 50s to middle 60s with a few

this evening over northern Iowa into southern Minnesota. More fog
is possible over western Iowa by Monday morning. Warm and humid
conditions continue on Monday with near record highs possible
over the southern half of Iowa. Breezy south winds are forecast
