A warm southerly wind will keep temperatures rising through the morning into the afternoon. It will be unseasonably warm with highs in the lower 60s. Our projected 63 degree high temperature is only 7 degrees off a record high for the date. While we are basking in 60 degree weather here in the eastern edge of Iowa, there will be near blizzard conditions out near Omaha. If you’re traveling, you will run into some slick travel, west and north of Des Moines and Waterloo.

A steady rain is likely after sunset tonight, lasting into the wee hours of the morning on Friday. Temperatures will crash into the middle 30s…but remain just on top of the threshold for anything other than rain.

Friday will be blustery and cold with temps steady in the 30s. Our next batch of weather will arrive with rain on Monday. A transition to a light mix or snow is possible Monday night into Tuesday.
