516 PM CST Sat Feb 18 2017
It was another warm day across Iowa with nearly full sunshine across
the state and temperatures approaching record highs. Peak afternoon
readings varied from around 70 southwest to the middle 50s north.
Winds were typically light and variable.
The warm and fair weather will continue through the weekend with
highs Sunday even a touch warmer. Several records may be neared or
broken as readings across the region are expected to vary from the
middle 50s in southwest Wisconsin where some snow still exists all the
way up to the lower 70s from central Iowa south and west.
This warmth will persist into midweek but there will be a change in
the weather as well. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will
increase through the Missouri River Valley late Sunday Night and then
spread eastward into the Mississippi Valley into Monday.
