Weather Summary for Iowa

1011 AM CDT Fri Apr 21 2017
If you love sunny weather, there should be plenty of it in store today.
Overnight, a Canadian high pressure moved southward toward the region
and cleared out the cloudy skies. This high pressure will stick
around today and give us relatively clear conditions, however the
southern third of the region may have a better chance at overcast
skies as precipitation lingers to the south in Missouri. A northeast
wind should keep temperatures around a cool, but seasonable 60 degrees
throughout the region during the day today.
As we go into the weekend, we will see the Canadian high continue to
build into the area and the persistent Missouri clouds will finally
move out, giving the whole region a chance to see the sun.
Temperatures will begin to slowly work back upward as well. The lower
to mid 60s will be expected on Saturday and then with a wind shift out
of the south, the upper 60s to the lower 70s will be in the forecast
for Sunday and Monday. In addition, over the weekend, our
precipitation chances will be fairly low.
Tuesday and beyond, clouds and precipitation will return and our
temperatures will again cool into the 50s and 60s.
