If you didn’t get enough of the sun yesterday, you’ll have another chance today. Also… if yesterday wasn’t warm enough for you, today should be better. Highs today, thanks to a southwesterly light wind, reach the 70s across eastern Iowa. That’ll be 5-10° above normal for the date. Today’s checklist once again will feature sunglasses and allergy medicine. Pollen counts stay high through midweek.
Lows fall into the 40s tonight before another mild day (again, with the southerly wind). Monday may be a couple degrees cooler with increasing clouds later in the day. Most of the area once again warms into the 70s. Winds become stronger ahead of a cold front that tracks through Tuesday.
Winds stay breezy as the front crosses the region Tuesday. We could squeeze a rumble of thunder out along with showers Tuesday.
