Well, it was anything but a pleasant spring morning across the state.
The entire state woke up to cloudy skies and a bit of chill in the
air, and many had light to moderate rain to boot. Morning lows ranged
from the mid 30s across the north to the low to mid 40s in the south.
Throw in some breezy northeast winds on top of it all, and it sums up
to a day worthy of indoor activities. By late this morning,
temperatures and overall conditions had changed very little with rain
light to moderate rain over large areas of southern and central Iowa.
Generally dreary conditions will stick around the region much of the
weekend as a low pressure system slowly meanders its way northeast
through Missouri and towards the the southern Great Lakes region. As
the wave of moderate precipitation continues to move westward this
morning, precipitation will lighten to more of a drizzle for much of
the area and will continue off and on into Sunday before finally
exiting east. Temperatures Sunday will see a bit of a boost, but not
by much with highs across the region generally in the mid 40s to
around 60. Temperatures throughout next week will typically hover in
the 50s to mid 60s as predominantly northerly winds will prevent any
quick warm ups. Precipitation will generally stay away to begin the
week before another low pressure system moves into the area mid-week.
