The month of April has not been a kind one thus far, however we have rounded the corner and spring-like weather has finally made its way to eastern Iowa and it will continue through the next several days with temperatures near average.
Quiet weather will persist through the rest of tonight. A slow moving storm system in the southern plains will continue to spread clouds into the area. They will act as a blanket and keep temperatures from dipping too cold and will actually be close to normal with readings in the mid/upper 30s to lower 40s.
Clouds will break up with some sunshine squeezing through on Sunday. The weekend will end on a nice note despite the sun/cloud mix as temperatures will push into the upper 50s to mid 60s.
Temperatures will remain near normal through Tuesday with readings well into the 60s with a partly to mostly sunny sky. A cold front will sweep through Tuesday night, however the system appears to be disorganized and weak so not expecting any precipitation, but will bring slightly cooler temperatures for Wednesday with highs in the 50s to 60.
After a brief bump back to the 60s Thursday, another frontal passage could bring a few showers Thursday night, however moisture appears to be rather limited so nothing more than a light rain is expected. That would be the only chance for any precipitation through the week ahead.
High pressure returns to end the week with cooler temperatures back into the 50s on Friday.
