Happy Super Bowl Sunday (and National Weatherperson’s Day)! The forecast today looks mild for Iowa, but a little chillier than Houston.
Yesterday’s clouds and winds have moved out and today will be a near average day. Highs rise to the mid 20s through the upper 30s. A light breeze from the northwest will keep our highs a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday. Partly cloudy skies continue through the overnight before more clouds track in on Monday.
Even though clouds increase for Monday, it will also be the warmest day until next weekend. To the north, we’ll reach the upper 30s and low 40s. Southern counties reach the upper 40s – to near 50! It’s not too much longer after we reach our highs on Monday that Mother Nature reminds us that it is the BEGINNING of February. Light rain tracks in late tomorrow and transitions over to a wintry mix for Tuesday. A cold front crosses the state Tuesday and drags in cold air behind it. Highs on Wednesday won’t be warmer than the low 20s. We begin to rebound temperatures on Thursday.
Friday will be breezy with highs back into the upper 30s and next weekend looks mainly dry with highs in the low 40s.
