521 PM CDT Thu Apr 26 2018

Another nice day this week across Iowa. A weak front has been moving
across the state. Temperatures in central and eastern Iowa have been
in the low 70s this afternoon, with temperatures in western Iowa in
the mid 60s. The front has resulted in a few wind gusts above 20
miles per hour and have shifted from westerly to northwesterly. A few
clouds developed along the front as well, but no rain has been
reported. Overall sunshine has been present across the state. Dewpoint
temperatures have been low relative to the actual temperature, making
for dry conditions and potential fire hazards this afternoon.

Across the rest of the region, temperatures in Missouri and Illinois
have been in the low 70s ahead of the front, with temperatures in
Kansas and Nebraska in the mid 60s behind the front. Radar is showing
dry conditions across the region.

Weather conditions will continue to be quiet into this evening. Due to
clear skies, temperatures will drop into the mid 30s across Iowa.
The gusty winds will become calm as we head into the evening. Friday
and into the weekend, conditions will remain dry and temperatures
will continue to warm, with mid 70s in the forecast for the weekend.
The next chance for active weather looks to be Monday into Tuesday.
