This Evening: We are missing out on some soaking showers and storms to our southwest. Most of this evening will be dry besides for a few isolated showers/storms in the southwest. Temperatures and humidity will be comfortable.

Tonight: A few more light isolated showers may be possible through tonight with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows will be similar to this morning – in the low to mid 60s. We will see a south southeast wind at 10 to 15 mph.

Friday: Friday will be dry with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies but breezy with a south southeast wind at 10 to 20 mph bringing highs to the low and mid 80s. Humidity will be a little more noticeable but not extremely high.

We will track a slightly better chance for showers and storms to move in Friday night through Saturday morning. Models disagree significantly on this shot of rain, so for now I have kept our chance at 30%. Temperatures remain mild in the mid to upper 60s with a south southeast wind at 10-15 mph.

Weekend: If we do see any storms, they will linger into Saturday morning before giving way to partly cloudy skies. Highs will reach the upper 80s and near 90 with a continuing south wind. Humidity will jump to some uncomfortable levels with heat indices near the mid 90s.

For Sunday, heat indices will approach 100 degrees at times with dew points in the low to mid 70s and highs in the low 90s. There will be a low end chance of rain and storms throughout the day.

A better chance for rain will come Sunday night and Monday morning as a cold front will clear out some of the heat and humidity.

Next Week: After the rain on Monday morning, I have added some much-needed rain chances from Tuesday night through Friday. These will be low end, hit or miss chances but it is a positive signal since dry conditions have expanded across eastern Iowa. Temperatures look to hang around the mid to upper 80s with lows in the mid 60s. After a dry Tuesday with low humidity we will see humidity increasing through the week. We may dry out for next weekend.
