It's going to be another un-June-like day across eastern Iowa. With a mix of sun and clouds, temperatures will warm close to 70 this afternoon. A few, brief showers will be possible near and south of Highway 30 this afternoon otherwise it will be mostly dry.
High pressure will be building in throughout the day from north to south. The high pressure system will settle in directly overhead tonight and into tomorrow morning. Clear skies, cool air and light winds will lead to temperatures tumbling into the mid to upper 40s.
High pressure moves off to the east tomorrow afternoon and will shift winds out of the south. Temperatures will warm, closer to normal, in the mid to upper 70s Tuesday afternoon. A warm front will approach Tuesday night into Wednesday and showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout the day on Wednesday. Humidity will also increase and it will be feeling muggy Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
A few scattered storms will be possible Thursday, especially in the southern half of the area, with a higher chance on Friday.
Thereafter, a few showers may linger on Saturday otherwise it will be warm and mostly dry this upcoming weekend.
