TRACKING: Pleasant Friday but a warm and humid weekend with storm chances

The threat for any rain showers has moved east. The cloud cover has decreased behind it and will lead to partly cloudy skies this afternoon.

 Highs will remain below average by a couple of degrees in the upper 70’s to low 80’s.

Mostly clear skies, a light wind, and lows in the upper 50’s/lower 60’s will be a great combination for some patchy fog to develop Friday night and Saturday morning. An isolated shower will be possible south of I-80 tonight but confidence is not very high.

Skies remain mostly sunny to partly cloudy Saturday with highs in the low to mid 80’s. Since temperatures will be so warm there will be a chance for a pop up shower or storm in the afternoon.

Another reason for the storm chances is the humidity. Humidity will begin to build to uncomfortable conditions through the weekend.

Saturday night may get a little rocky as a line of storms will roll in from the west.

Be prepared for strong to severe storms across eastern Iowa Saturday night with damaging wind gusts as the primary threat.

Besides the chance for storms early Sunday morning and late in the night, Sunday will mainly be dry with warm and humid conditions.

High heat and extreme humidity will linger through Tuesday. A cold front Tuesday will bring a chance for storms but also some relief from the heat by the end of the week.
