      Updated Wednesday, October 18, 2017

      Rinse and repeat today. Today will be mild and sunny, with highs in the low to mid 70s across the area. Winds today are breezy from the south. Those winds calm overnight. Temperatures tonight fall into the low to mid 40s. 

      Both Thursday and Friday feature sunshine for eastern Iowa. Tomorrow may be a few degrees cooler but we close out the week around 10° above normal for mid-October. Strong winds track in for Friday and Saturday. 

      Showers and storms are possible this weekend.
