There may be a few showers today, otherwise the pattern turns calm and mild for the weekend.
There will be some areas of fog this morning, then clouds will build in. This is due to a storm moving through the southern Mississippi Valley. There will be some rain on the northern edge that may lead to a few showers in extreme eastern Iowa this afternoon. If rain arrives later, there may be some freezing rain or drizzle, but the precipitation should mainly be rain. It will be cloudy and cool otherwise with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s.
FRIDAY - THE WEEKEND
High pressure moves in and it will be calm and mild for the weekend. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to mid 40s Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be plenty of sunshine each day as well. Nights will be clear, as well, so it will be cold with low temperatures in the 20s during this time.
The mild, calm weather will continue into next week. Temperatures remain above average, near and above 40 Monday through Wednesday.
