Thursday will be another warm fall day with high temperatures approaching 80 degrees. Cooler weather is going to move into the area Thursday. A cold front is forecast to cross eastern Iowa Thursday morning. There is a slight chance for a few light rain showers Thursday and Friday. Here is the forecast position of the front Thursday morning.
High pressure will take over for the weekend with sunshine and a light wind again but the difference is that it will be much colder. Highs this weekend will be in the low-mid 50s and morning lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. Here is the position of the high Sunday morning.
