Aside from some very light showers over southeast Iowa, it was a
quiet Friday morning over the state with partly cloudy skies in
the north and mostly cloudy to cloudy conditions in the south.
Winds were around 5 to 10 mph from the southeast with temperatures
rising into the 60s by the late morning.
The weather across the region today will turn out very similar to
what occurred Thursday with plenty of clouds from Iowa south and
east, with light showers lingering from southern Iowa into
Missouri and Illinois. The weekend looks mainly dry with warming
temperatures. Highs should be well into the 70s and even topping
80 degrees in spots. The outlook for next week turns wetter
however with plenty of chances for showers and thunderstorms and
seasonally warm temperatures. Severe weather may even return to
the Midwest at times.
