More quiet weather across Iowa as the storm in the northeast inches its way westward. The most impact from the storm that we have and will see is the gusty wind from the north today.
The wind will diminish this evening. The storm will begin to move northeast and weaken on Wednesday. Here is the surface map from this afternoon.
High pressure will keep us dry through the rest of the week. The storm in the northeast part of the nation will be out of the country by the end of the week. At that time an area of low pressure will develop in Kansas Friday night and track east through Missouri Saturday. The map below is the GFS model for Saturday at 1 pm.
Expect clouds and showers Saturday and Sunday with a better chance of showers to be Saturday. The temperatures will be cooler due to the cloud cover for the weekend.
Monday will be dry but on Tuesday a cold front will cross the state with another chance of a few showers.
The 8-14 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center shows temperatures near normal and precipitation above normal.
